Riposa in Pace
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our longtime baritone horn player, Dr. Jon Nicholson, on October 8th, 2015.
A native of Syracuse, NY, Dr. Jon joined our band when he retired from a distinguished career as a public school music educator. His various appointments included the Springfield, VT, Belmont and Acton-Boxborough school districts before finishing his career at the University of Rhode Island. He was one of the founders of the Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors Association. Jon's love for concert band music (especially Italian band music!) was infectious and his consummate musicianship and positive countenance brightened our bandstand for the 18 years he was with us. Our condolences go to all of his large and loving family. The Colonial Band community shares in your grief.
Goodbye to Summer!
The summer of 2015 was a memorable one with our performance at the Leominster Centennial Celebration (complete with cannons and church bells!) and our successful summer concert series. Our next performance will be our 26th annual Christmas Concert on December 13th. Watch this space for more information about the concert.
Providing band music for the enjoyment of Leominster’s citizens since 1910.
