Greco Band cancels season due to pandemic

Directors made the difficult decision to cancel the Dominic Greco Band 2021 concert season.


As concerns around COVID-19 and the COVID-19 vaccine continue to spread throughout the U.S., the health and well-being of Dominic Greco Band members, families, directors and communities are a top priority.

The directors considered many options and made the decision last week to cancel the Dominic Greco Band 2021 concert season.

“It is difficult enough to get a community band together. The current circumstances make it next to impossible to have an ensemble with people from many different communities, ready and willing, to get together even if we had a large enough rehearsal space,” co-director Brian Botdorf said.

“We want to see everyone and make music together again, but there are still so many restrictions to what we can do,” co-director April Linard said.

The school districts still have limited access to their school buildings. This also limits the access to a rehearsal space. While many of the audiences can practice social distancing at outside events, the members of the band are not able to practice social distancing in rehearsals or performances.

Co-director Cheryl Graham is positive about the group and the future. “Musicians love to play, and when we are able to get together again, we will. It is taking some time to get vaccines out and will still take time to get things closer to normal, but our goal is to be back in rehearsal and performance mode for the 2022 Summer Concert Series.”
