Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

The 2016-2017 season marks the Manatee Community Concert Band's fourth year of leadership under the direction of Randy T. Gilmore. The band continues to improve in sound and performance and is gaining recognition as the area's premier community band. 

The band remains committed to keeping our concerts free to the public. We believe that good music should be available to everyone without having the concern of ticket prices. Keeping our performances accessible in this way requires focusing on fundraising. Efforts include active solicitation of donations from local businesses, charitable organizations, and audience members.

As Randy begins his fourth season with the band, we look forward to an exciting season of providing quality, live musical entertainment in our community.
