Review for Chester County Concert Band, Drexel Hill, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a member of the Chester County Concert Band, I attend weekly rehearsals in preparation for spring and fall concerts, as well as an extensive summer concert series. This is a great bonding experience for the group internally (all volunteer members gathering for one major passion), as well as the group bonding with an audience. It is touching to see the community come out to listen to a live performing arts group - I feel that is something our generation is losing out on and therefore the live arts are falling to the wayside. I know our audiences love hearing the group play, and it is especially touching when we play for those less fortunate than us. For instance, we have played Christmas and summer concerts at the Melmark home in Bryn Mawr, and knowing the struggles these challenged people have been through makes you feel even better because you've brightened someone else's day. I hope we continue to return there.

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

being able to perform concerts for audience of all backgrounds.

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

the friendships that have developed, brightening someone's day who may be less fortunate than me.

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

welcoming and friendly, willing to create new friendships and help each other learn.
