The band numbered 148 strong because musicians from other bands were invited to participate in this one concert - that's alot of horn tootin'! The theme was "Along for the Ride," and the music selected mirrored the theme. Audience and band alike seemed to have a great good time. A few examples of the program: Tramp Tramp Tramp, The Great Locomotive Chase, Baby Elephant Walk, and - get this - Sleigh Ride. Cheryl Woldseth, conductor, donned a muffler for the latter selection and a few wits in the band pulled on Santa caps. The crowd howled!
Speaking of which, I'm sure the band was pleased with the turnout. Jimmy and I estimated 300 to 500 people of all ages enjoying this free entertainment. We tapped our feet and enjoyed our evening!
Cute band logo... esp in the Mother Lode!
