President's Message, December 2020:
I hope all of our followers are doing well, remaining safe, and staying healthy! 2020 was a strenuous year for everyone. Students were unable to attend school in their normal brick-and-mortar fashion. Many people were out of work due to the pandemic restrictions, and some even experienced the COVID-19 virus first hand. With all of that being said, the Marine Band of Allentown also missed out on our concert season! This time of year, the Winter Concert would be filling the air with the music of the Holiday Season. Whether it was performed at Christ Lutheran Church or at one of our other local venues, such as Luther Crest or Phoebe, the season commenced with the sounds of traditional and contemporary pieces the members of the Band enjoyed to perform.
Although this has been a trying year, the Marine Band of Allentown is looking forward to and hoping for 2021 to revive the music our audience members long to hear in person. We will keep you all updated as we receive information on our schedule and ability to bring live performances back to the Lehigh Valley. Keep viewing our website for updates in the new year.
Contributions are still welcome to offset some of our expenses. To make a tax-deductible donation to the Marine Band of Allentown, please send your donation to Theresa Nemeth at the address listed on our website. Please note that your donation assists the Marine Band of Allentown in sustaining the outstanding tradition of live concert band performances.
In closing, from the entire Marine Band of Allentown, we extend a Happy, Safe and Healthy Holiday Season and we look forward to seeing you at our performances in 2021!
President, Marine Band of Allentown
