Rehearsals Return Sept 7

Text reads, Rehearsals Return Sept 7; We're returning to Sanford Middle School. Background is red theater curtains.

The Seward Concert Band is excited to return for our 46th season with the first rehearsal of the year on Thursday, September 7 at Sanford Middle School.

Our Director, Dr. Cassandra Bechard, is planning an exciting season for us as musicians. Music planned for this year includes the timeless tunes of Broadway, before being transported to the realms of their favorite video games, and jazz pieces that have stood the test of time. Plus many of our favorite classics.

Our COVID policies will remain as they were at the end of last season:

  • Provide proof of COVID Vaccination (those who haven’t previously been checked)
  • Use sanitary means of spit disposal – disposable pads are available.
