Second Saturday
"History of the Bay Concert Band"
with James Griffiths

The Bay Concert Band was formed in 1977, when ads in the Bay City Times asked if former high school band members might like to help organize a community band. Seventy-seven musicians attended the first rehearsal, and the band has remained active ever since.

Join President James Griffiths for a look at the band's history and projects planned for the future.

NOTE: This presentation will take place in the Bay City Central High School auditorium, 1624 Columbus Avenue, in conjunction with Michigan History District 5 finals. The Museum will be closed on this date.
