Program Notes

Community bands have long afford talent musicians, regardless of their varied occupations, with the opportunity to further their deep love of performing music. Celebration and Tribute was written for the Milford Community Band, in honor of their 25th anniversary. N. Joe Lear, Sr., founded this outstanding organization, located in Milford, Delaware. At the age of 90, Mr. Lear continues to perform in the band, and each member is eternally grateful for his early vision of wanting to create an ensemble that would long serve the many wonderful citizens of Milford.
