Letter from the Chairman
BOARD MEMBERS 2015-16
Dear Music Lover,
Can you believe that the Laguna Concert Band has been celebrating our 15th year as a Laguna Beach performing arts organization? This has been 15 years of wonderful music making and collaboration with the Arts community of Laguna Beach. Even so, the band remains a true “hidden jewel” in the community, and we want to change this!
So many of you have provided occasional support in the past and we are hoping that you’ll join us now as we launch our first Annual Membership Campaign.
Additional information about the Laguna Concert Band, various membership levels, and the various benefits that you will receive with your membership information can be found on our website here. As an added bonus for joining us this year, you will be forever listed as a “Founding Donor” in all future donor listings.
I hope that you have enjoyed some of our great performances throughout the years. Some of the highlights over the past two years include: A world premiere performance at the grand opening of the Bern Environmental Study Loop and Amphitheater at Crystal Cove State Park, with CA state officials attending; a featured performance at Segerstrom Hall after being selected as one of the finest community performing groups in Orange County by the Pacific Symphony; 4 sold out performances at the Laguna Playhouse with Guest Artist Lee Rocker from the Stray Cats, receiving the “Arts Collaboration Award” at the Laguna Arts Stars Awards for our work on the soundtrack to “The Sock Thief” Animation and Sound Track project with Laguna College of Art + Design (LCAD); and work on another two LCAD soundtracks, which resulted in the Band recording at the legendary Capitol Records Studio A in Hollywood, CA (historic recording studio for The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, and countless others).
Past gifts have allowed us to accomplish much, but there is so much more we can do with additional support. The Band has some exciting things planned for this year, including Two shows with guest artist Peter Asher, on February 6 & 7, 2016, and collaborations with the Laguna School District to highlight student performances with the Laguna Concert Band.
I invite you to join other music and art patrons who are ready to invest in the Band this year. Please consider joining us by viewing the membership information and making a contribution to your band. I look forward to adding your name to the 2016 Laguna Concert Band honor roll and being able to share the same with our community.
We have come a long way in 15 years and we invite you to join us in our exciting collective music future. We are committed to continue the high level of excellence from all of our multiple groups the Laguna Concert Band BRAND! Help us continue to grow our collaborations with other Laguna Beach entities to further build and expand the Performing ARTS of Laguna Beach.
