Dear Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the editors and staff of the Tri-City Times for their continued support of the Belle Valley Community Band.

The timely articles written and published during July and August 2022 aided our ensemble in restarting after a two-and-a-half year hiatus due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Many of our previous band members, as well as several new members, have begun rehearsing for our upcoming concert season.

Our mission is to provide Imlay City and surrounding communities with quality music entertainment.

With composers like Clair Grundman, John Phillip Sousa, Karl King and Robert Buckley, John Williams, Robert W. Smith and Randy Newman on our Sunday, Oct. 30 concert program, we are sure to have something for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you,
— Art Smith
Belle Valley Community Band.
