Keizer Community Band DELAYED (AGAIN)
Happy 2022 to band members and friends of the Keizer Community Band. I had hoped to be able to say we were starting up again in January, but with the rapid increase of the Omicron virus and the possibility that schools may return to virtual learning, I don’t think this is the time.
I do realize that some groups, including school groups are rehearsing. They are wearing masks, socially distancing, cleaning their chairs and stands, etc. I would rather wait to enjoy band. I hope we can return in the spring and play a concert.
On a sadder note. Blake Maddox a former Keizer Band and Jazz Band member has passed away. He was one of the original band members. He was the last remaining member of the Capitol City Jazz Band. I have no details of any service or remembrance. I will let you know if I find out.
Please stay safe,
