Seward City Band Concert

We enjoyed another City Band Concert last evening at the Band Shell. Julie and John are very much a part of the band's Alto Saxophone section. Julie shows on the picture just to the left of the "N" flagpole & John is next to her. John Jurchen was featured leading the singing of the National Anthem and also in playing his Trumpet. He is very professional. Andrew Schultz does an excellent job leading the Band, he is a Music Professor at Concordia. They played some John Phillip Sousa marches which were most enjoyable. During our early years in Washington, D.C. we seldom missed a Watergate Concert with the Marine Band on the Potomac River. They were great but disrupted every few minutes with flights coming in to National (at that time) Airport.On a scale of 1-10, the Marine Band would rate 10 but I would give our City Band an 8. To many of us, we can hardly detect the difference between the two. It is great to have such entertainment available to the public at no charge and only 4 blocks from our house.
