Week 1 - June 17 Concert

The  Chemical City Band will perform its first concert of the 2015 season on Wednesday, June 17 at 7:30 PM at the Nicholson-Guenther band shell in Midland's Central Park at Rodd & E. Collins Streets (across from Central Middle School parking lot).

This 106th season will feature a number of guest conductors, including Chris O'Connell for the first 2 concerts.  Chris has just been named the Assistant Band Director for Midland High School.  The Chemical City Band will be looking for a permanent director this season due to the loss of Jim Huber to the Midland area.  Jim, who completed 14 years as our conductor, has moved on to a new position as administrator for the Otsego Christian School, interim pastor at a local church, and performing (yes, he is a fine clarinet player) in the Gaylord Community Band.  We wish him and wife Terri well in their new endeavors.

Our first concert will be shared with a new musical group in town, the MidMichigan Brass Band, directed by Megan Barnard.
