Shorewood Concert Band 2020

It is with a heavy heart that the Shorewood Concert Band Board must announce the cancellation of our Summer 2020 season. The safety of our players and audience are of the utmost importance to us and we cannot in good conscience host a concert while doing so could threaten the health of so many.

Like you, we eagerly anticipate our season as a time of fun, connection and celebration of our shared love of music. We had hoped the world would have looked different by June & July, but after closely following the development of the COVID-19 outbreak, having discussions with our partners in Shorewood and at Brass Bell Music where we hold our rehearsals, and in keeping with guidance from the CDC, we can’t see a clear picture of it being be safe for all of us to gather again.

We're proud of providing the music for the past 39 years for the Shorewood Men's Club Chicken BBQ Picnic (cancelled for 2020), the Fourth of July Family Day celebrations (delayed by the Shorewood Village Board until September or October) and the Thursday Night Concerts (restrictions for the use of Atwater Park put in place by the Shorewood Recreation Dept.)

It’s your enthusiasm as both musicians and audience members that inspires us to make our concerts bigger and better every year.

Looking forward to seeing you all in 2021 for our 40th season!
