Review for Band Of The Hills, Cedar Park, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Band of the Hills enables other non-profits by bringing music to their events. It is a force multiplier for the Williamson/Travis counties society. In addition, it provides education (to audiences and members) and entertainment. As a member of both the Band of the Hills and the affiliated Clarinet Choir, I find it an excellent respite from my daily concerns. It is also well known that playing music has positive cognitive benefits. This is particularly important for older members.

Review for Band Of The Hills, Cedar Park, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Band of the Hills is a large community wind/percussion band that encourages participation across a wide range of ages (middle school to retirees) and skills (music education professionals and those returning to their instruments many years after school). It brings value to the community through the participation of over 80 performers as well as the entertainment from performances by the entire band and several sub-groups (clarinet choir, piccolo duet, flute quartet). The cognitive benefits of performing and listening to good music are well established. In addition, the band adds to the social capital of the greater Leander, Cedar Park, Austin and Georgetown communities through the rehearsals and performances.
