Community Performing Arts Center

Dear Green Valley Concert Band Supporters and Patrons,

Thank you for taking time to visit! The Green Valley Concert Band is excited to begin our 2023-2024 season. As a band, we are honored to have your support and enthusiastic presence at our performances. We love to play - and your appreciation is yet another form of "music to our ears".

We are comprised of professional and amateur musicians from the greater Green Valley/Tucson area as well as those dedicated members who travel greater distances to share their love of music with you.

In what has become a tradition for the band, we are kicking off the new season with three outdoor concerts in October: two at the Community Performing Arts Center (CPAC) and the third concert at Historic Canoe Ranch.

After these performances, the band moves indoors, to our usual venue, Sahuarita District Auditorium. As is our custom, we will have guest artists joining us for concerts throughout the season. In December we are looking forward to a unique collaboration with some members of the Green Valley Community Chorus. We have yet another holiday gift to you, as this concert will also feature Danielle Swartz, an accomplished harpist who has graced us with her fine performances in past concerts.

Later this year we will have the wonderful experience of premiering a composition written expressly for Green Valley Concert Band. Dedicated to our beloved late percussionist and past President, Peg Bowden, and with funding contributed by her husband, Lester Weil, this piece is written by Mark Wolfram, a composer closely tied to our community.

Blending traditional favorites with new and exciting band literature, the upcoming season certainly has events not to be missed. We look forward to seeing familiar faces of old friends as well as new music lovers who have not yet discovered us. Your attendance assists our band's mission of spreading the joy and beauty of music throughout wonderful Green Valley and Sahuarita.

Thank you! 

Marianne Checkovich, President
Green Valley Concert Band
