|LCB Says Farewell to Two Longtime Players||In February, Bill Remsburg, French horn
player with the Lafayette Citizens Band
for many years, passed away. His obituary can be found on the
Journal and Courier website.
And we have just heard about the passing of Don Ambler, a Lafayette native and Jeff High School graduate, who played for many years starting in the 1940s with the LCB and was a clarinet teacher. He moved to Colorado and played with the Denver Symphony while continuing his teaching. Don's obituary can be found on the Horan & McConaty Funeral Home website. There is a nice article in the Denver Post from December 2011. There is also a picture and a story on the Lafayette Citizens Band's Facebook page (you may need to log in).
We are featuring some special events through the month of June. Bill Kisinger's trombone ensemble, "Bill's Bones" will be playing at 6:30 on June 6th. On June 13th, Irena Schulz, of "Snowball the Dancing Cockatoo" YouTube fame will be singing with us. That evening, the fun begins at 6 (the only time entertainment will begin before 6:30) with an animal talent show, and Almost Home Humane Society will be there with adoptable pets! The next week, June 20th, the clarinet group "Time 4 Reeds" is performing at 6:30, and the last week of June, the 27th, Pam Nave and her Peripatetic Percussionists will enthrall us with their mad drumming skills.
This season, we are accepting donations of food for Almost Home Humane Society and Food Finders of Lafayette at every concert. Please note we will NOT be collecting financial donations for either charity--just food or other appropriate items. As always, our concerts are free, but if you would like to do so, you can drop off items for either organization at any of our concerts and we will see that they get to the right place.
The 2013 concert season starts in just three weeks, with our Memorial Day concert at Riehle Plaza, beginning at 7:30 pm. Make your plans to come and join us!
And, fans, the 2013 Concert Schedule is ready! We look forward to seeing you again, too!

Here are three YouTube videos of the LCB.
These performances are from the LCB's 2010 season opening concert in Long Center on May 20, 2010. The excellent videography is by Kerry England, Hornkraft Productions.
"Hoagy Carmichael in Concert": This medley of Indiana composer Hoagy Carmichael's tunes was commissioned for the LCB's 150th anniversary concert in 1992 from Warren Barker, and premiered at that concert.
"Esprit de Corps":, by Robert Jager. This piece is a fantasy on the Marine Corps hymn.
"George Washington Bicentennial March": This John Philip Sousa march was written to commemorate the 200th anniversary of George Washington's birth, and was the last march Sousa composed before his death in 1932.
