May 2016 Update

Dear Friend of the Palatine Concert Band,

For those of you who were able to attend our concert on Sunday May 1st, thank you so much for coming out and sharing your Sunday afternoon with us – we had a blast!  The music was energizing with a spicy, Spanish flavor and was a little unpredictable at times.  Although it was demanding of the musicians, it was full of great vitality and excitement!   We hope you found it a great way to cap off the year, and lead into our summer concert series.  We are so grateful to you for making our 2015-2016 season a rousing success.
 
Our summer season is packed with plenty of chances to hear the PCB in an outdoor venue at a great price – free.  These are wonderful opportunities to pack a picnic basket with your favorite food and beverage – and let the music wash over you in the warmth of the summer.   Continuing under the direction of Dr. Rick Lowe, the band has been busy working on the summer program, building a repertoire of Americana, show tunes, and all-around fun music.   Our summer concert dates begin pretty quickly:

We are also pleased to give you an early peek at the 2016-2017 Indoor Concert Season.   Mark these on your calendar now, and we’ll let you know more details as we get ready to start the season.

Thank you again for all your support this season and over the years.  Many of you have been with us for a great length of time and your commitment to the band has great meaning for all of us.  Have a fabulous summer, take some time to enjoy outdoor music in one of the many venues throughout the Chicagoland area, and we hope to see you at a Palatine Concert Band performance soon.
 
Kindest Regards,
