The Adams State University Band Director, Don Miller, invites any campus and community musicians interested in rehearsing and performing concert band music to join him at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5.

Miller plans on continuing weekly rehearsals in preparation for future performances. He wants to provide "a musical service to the community, a musical outlet for performers, and to enhance the artistic life of the San Luis Valley." Traditional concert band music will be rehearsed and performed at the public concerts.

The first concert will focus on the year 1963 including "Scenes from the Louvre" and "Elegy for a Young American." No audition is necessary and there is no cost associated with joining the band.

Miller said he wants participants to "make good music while enjoying rehearsals and provide enlightened and interesting performances."
