Think Outside the Bachs

The Upper Valley Community Band has been playing music for the local community since 1970. (To be clear, we haven’t been playing non-stop since 1970 – we take breaks to eat, drink, sleep, and go to work.) Directed by Becky “Movie Star” Luce and Cindy “Go, Mom, Go” Patenaude, the band’s members are dozens of area residents who gather together weekly to practice making noise. We’re pretty proud when those noises match what’s written on our music sheets, and we think our audience will love it, too! Our spring concert, entitled “Think Outside the Bachs”, will feature goofballs and gaiety, much like our weekly rehearsals. We promise our audience a night of laughs and surprises, and a program of musical entertainment that’s suitable for all ages.

Selections include:

  • Grand Serenade for an Awful Lot of Winds and Percussion
  • Fugue on Yankee Doodle
  • Variations on a Kitchen Sink
