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
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 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.
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 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
This is a great organization! I have attended several performances and have enjoyed them all very much! The volunteer performers seem to be having a good time using their musical talents to entertain the public. This is a class act!
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.
