This is the band’s 13th yearly concert since the 2001 Centennial. In addition to performing Sousa marches, including “Stars and Stripes Forever,” big band songs, and “Marches of the Armed Forces,” the band became a choir for three songs. This year a flute trio performed, and Rod Shedenhelm and Bill Henley performed a trumpet duet, “Flight of the Bumblebee.” It was incredible and received a standing ovation.

Plans are well underway for the 2015 Alumni Reunion to be held July 18, 2015 with the alumni band preparing for a return as well. Honored classes next year will be from 1955, 1965, and 1975.
