IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) – After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the East Idaho Community Band, formerly known as the Idaho Falls Community Band, is getting back together.
They will give their first concert since the break, which the public can attend for free.
It will take place at the Rocky Mountain Middle School Auditorium on Friday, November 18 at 7:00 p.m.
The theme of the concert is “Proud Heritage”. Daniel Baldwin, bandleader of the East Idaho Community Band, said, “It’s kind of a post-Veteran’s Day concert. But it’s a mix of all kinds of music.”
You can expect pieces from The Lion King, American classics like the “Star Spangled Banner,” and more.
Baldwin and the band wanted to use their concert as a way to honor and thank our veterans.
If you have an instrument you enjoy playing, the band invites new members to join.
“We want as many people from the community as possible to come join us and have the opportunity to make music and socialize in the community,” Baldwin said.
The band is made up of all wind and percussion instruments.
Those interested in joining the group can contact Baldwin at his email [email protected]
Those wishing to attend the concert can simply turn up at the auditorium on the evening of the show.
