Boeing Employees Concert Band

August 26, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Boeing Employees’ Concert Band starts its thirty-fifth season this fall.

The Boeing Employees’ Concert Band was formed in 1979, as a club in The Boeing Company Recreation Unit, through the initial efforts of Matt Thornton. The first conductor was Howard Akers, a composer/conductor and arranger who was respected as a fine musician throughout the country. He also donated a large collection of music from his library as editor of Carl Fisher Music Company.

The band plays a wide range of music from lively marches to show tunes, great classics arranged for band and holiday music appropriate to the season.
