Missoula City Band Kicks Off Summer Schedule June 14

The Missoula City Band is without a doubt, the longest standing performing musical ensemble in Missoula, currently under the direction of Gary Gillett.  Its rich history goes back through partnerships with the Elks and Eagles playing in an antiquated bandstand at the Courthouse Square.  It’s Director Emeritus, Alex Stepanzopff, drove the group through thick and thin and whose name is synonymous with the City Band.

Today the Band enjoys stable funding through the city of Missoula, increased membership, a wonderful performance sight at Bonner Park, and accolades of their fine, entertaining programs.

This summer, look for them playing great band music each Wednesday at 8 pm at the Bonner Park Band Shell, from June 14 through August 16.  Also, they will be the ‘main show’ (aside from the spectacular fireworks!) at Southgate Mall’s 4th of July festivities.  See you then.
