This show will take you on a musical tour of our country with a lovely solute to our veterans. The O’Connor Senior Center Geezer Band has participants ranging in age from 55-85, proving that it is never too late to learn something new!
The O’Connor Center Band was established in September 2013. This early edition of the band consisted of 7 members: 3 trumpets, 2 clarinets. 1 trombone and the director, Linda Edwards. They performed their first concert that December and the group has been growing ever since to our current membership of 44.
The band is mostly made up of people who, once upon a time, played an instrument in their junior or senior high school band, some as many as 50+ years ago and there are a few players who have started from scratch, never having previously played a musical instrument or having any prior musical knowledge. There are a couple of folks who are experienced musicians in other genres (dulcimer, vocal, piano) but who never played a wind instrument. They are doing it now!
