SCV Community Band Celebrates 25 Years

APRIL 14, 2008--The St. Croix Valley Community Band is celebrating its 25 years of providing music to the people of St. Croix Valley by taking the ensemble to the Czech Republic May 24 - June 3 and holding summer concerts in St. Croix and Pierce counties.

The ensemble is looking for additional musicians to attend the trip and those interested should visit www.uwrf.edu/music/symphonyband.htm for a travel brochure and more information. The cost of the trip is estimated at $2,095 per person.

"The history of the wind band is rich in the Czech Republic," said Tjornehoj. "It seems fitting that we are taking our music to share with people in the Czech Republic who celebrate music and cultural heritage."

The SCV Community Band will be going on a local tour this summer, performing July 19 in Hudson, July 23 in New Richmond, July 24 in River Falls, and July 27 in Glenwood City. Rehearsals are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. from June 10 to July 22.

Anyone interested in participating should contact Tjornehoj at 715-425-3940 or e-mail kristin.tjornehoj@uwrf.edu .
