I am a new member of the OCB and have found it to be a great challenge; but at the same time have learned to appreciate what it takes to make a "big band" sound come together. Everyone is there for the same reason; the OCB provides a venue for all of us to play a wide variety of music to a wide listening audience; from veterans to children to senior citizens.

I have had a great experience playing in the band with my daughter. Not only have I had the opportunity to play and perform with a wonderful group of musicians, but I have also formed many strong friendships that will last me throughout my lifetime.

My love for Music and performance has been filled by playing in the band since 1989. I played in the Jazz Band in college. In 1977 I had a stroke and did not play again until 1989. I would say that many people have been touched by the Band. People willingly donate their talent € time each week to practices and performances

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

the possibilities are endless. we are proud that we are the largest volunteer civic band in KS. Maybe we could do some international travel. We had a Europe trip in our sights several years back.

I have been playing in the Olathe Civic Band for several years. I started with Trombone, moved on to Flute and am now playing Bassoon. For the last two years, my wife has also joined (she plays clarinet). The experience has enriched our lives and we are so grateful to live in a community where we have this opportunity.

After I graduated from college, there seemed to be no venue for playing my piccolo and flute outside of church service. Then I found the Olathe Civic Band. This wonderful organisation is open to ALL musicians, from high school players to senior citizens. It provides a band experience identical to what we were used to while in school. It also provides fellowship, friendship, and fun to the members--the only payment the musicians receive. But not only is the Band there for musicians, it's there for the community--for people who can't play but enjoy listening. Throughout the summer, the OCB offers free concerts. Most are outside, where families are welcome to bring food and let the kids dance as we play. Some are at various nursing homes, for the seniors who are shut-ins. A couple are at city events. All of the concerts are free. If the Olathe Civic Band were to disappear, not only would my life gain an empty hole, but I believe so would many others' from the entire community. The OCB fills a need, a need that unfortunately is often overlooked when budget cuts are discussed.

The Olathe Civic Band is a great organization that provides music in many different venues in our community. It is also an opportunity for people of all ages to come together and share their love of music. As a younger member I keep coming back because of the valuable learning experience from seasoned musicians as well as the joy of making music for others in the community.

All members of the Olathe Civic Band are people who love music and sharing it with others. They are very kind and compassionate. All members are warmly welcomed.
