Our 7th annual Bands at the Broad concert and fundraiser is coming up on Tuesday, February 5. This enchanted evening features wine, cupcakes, a silent auction, and a special performance by Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble in the beautiful Broad Theater.
Bands at the Broad helps raise money for scholarships for this year's Wind Ensemble Rome tour and next year's Wind Symphony tour. We would like each family to bring in two auction items and at least one bottle of wine valued at $30 or more. Help make this the best Bands at the Broad yet!
