Gainesville Community Band Mother’s Day Concert

Gainesville Community Band Mother’s Day Concert

It is time to celebrate our mothers again which means that we get to host one of our favorite events — the annual Mother’s Day concert. Join your family and friends for musical enjoyment during the beautiful springtime. There is no better way to honor mothers than to come to United Trinity Methodist on May 12 at 3:00 p.m. for entertainment.

You will get to see your favorite electrician put down his tools once again to carry his trumpet and wear the title, musician. While this is my seventh year being involved in the event, my music background stems back to childhood. I even brought this passion with me to the University of Florida as a music major. While my career took a different path, I still get to share my love of music.

The Gainesville Community Band began 45 years ago in 1974 with only 11 musicians. Over the years it has grown to 80 people. The members range from electricians to professors to scientists and more. It is a wonderful way to include members of the community to share their passion for music.

We also play at the Charles Dean trumpet Memorial Concert, the James B. Kings Veterans Day Concert and Fanfare Fireworks at the University of Florida for Independence Day. Additionally, our band extended its performances to the Heart of Florida airshow and even Walt Disney World’s Fantasy Land stage as the first nonprofessional adult concert band.
