February 18, 2014 - For the seventh year, the EAA AirVenture Concert Band will perform at Oshkosh, and they're looking for musicians! The concert is scheduled for Wednesday, July 30, from 6:45-7:30 p.m.
More than 300 EAA members from 34 states and four countries have played in the EAA AirVenture Concert Band. Experience levels range from junior high students to retired musicians.
Elton Eisele, a longtime EAA member and high school band director from the Chicago area, will again serve as conductor. Sheet music will be provided well in advance of the event, and the band will rehearse Tuesday, July 29, and Wednesday, July 30, from 8-9:30 a.m.
For those who play large instruments that are difficult to transport, the band has partnered with Heid Music, located across from the North 40. Participants can call Heid Music directly at 920-651-4343 to reserve an instrument.
To be part of the 2014 AirVenture Oshkosh Concert Band, register online before May 31. For more information, visit the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh Concert Band Facebook page, or contact Elton Eisele firstname.lastname@example.org.
