I know this is a day late, but just wanted to say that I have heard the band play and they are very talented musicians, very polite, visited with the public before and after the concert. It is always a pleasure to listen to their great concerts

a concert at Hanover, Kansas.

The wife and I attended civic bands in the Seattle area and you would think they would have plenty of talent to draw from. We both agree that the OCB is far better and the approach to their activities is well thought out and much appreciated. The members show that they truly enjoy their participation and display their talents well. We look forward to the 2010 sessions.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being able to attend and appreciated by the band members.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

pleasant and interested in their organization.

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

grow too big and lose its uniqueness and pleasure.

I had the opportunity to see this amazing band during the Christmas holiday season! They do a wonderful thing for the veterans and their families! They are very professional and super friendly. If your ever in the Olathe or Kansas City area I highly suggest you check them out.

My wife and I are huge fans of musical performance. We love going to the local performances of shows, orchestras, or bands. We found the Olathe Civic Band by searching an events list and seeing them performing that same night! They were a very well directed, talented, and diverse group. That was two years ago, and ever since my wife and I have taken active roles in the band. They are extremely welcoming, and continue to impress beyond expectations. If you get the opportunity to see them, please take advantage of it. You will not be disappointed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely courteous and personable. You can really tell they enjoy what they are doing, and know how to have fun with it.

Ways to make it better...

I had gotten to perform with them sooner. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

We have been going to the OCB concerts for more years than I can remember--at least 11 or 12 for sure. It is a wonderful group and you can tell the members really enjoy what they are doing--they must since they do not get paid. We love the Christmas concert and all the other concerts and also really enjoy the Jazz Band. One thing we would like is if they could get more support so they could have more concerts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting the people who give their time and talents so freely so others can enjoy them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how nice and friednly everyone is.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Great!! Friendly and helpful.

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

Do so much more to get more music,stands,lights for outside performances.

I was invited by a friend of mine to attend an Olathe Civic Band concert who was performing a Christmas Program. I had no idea of what to expect as it had been a long time since I had been to a band concert. I invited my mother and we were both so very pleasantly surprised! One minute I was laughing at the band's light-hearted comedy and the next minute I was in tears because the music was just so beautiful. The Olathe Civic Band is a very talented organization. We enjoyed that concert so much and I now have a new-founded appreciation for band music. It opened my eyes to one of the many aspects of culture that this area has to offer. Thank you, Valarie Ellis

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the way it made me feel after one of the best band concerts I've been to in a very long while. I thoroughly enjoyed the program and the band members are all so talented.

I have attended OCB concerts for several years now. From concerts at the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farmstead to Veteran's Day concerts and holiday concerts. The music is enjoyable and the group carries on a rich tradition.

the good music and friendly members of the band.
