ANNOUNCING OUR 2023 REUNION EVENT!
We are excited to announce that the next All-American Alumni Band reunion event will be in Danville, KY, at the Great American Brass Band Festival, June 1 – 3. www.gabbf.org
Lodging and rehearsals will be in Lexington, KY. May 31 (Wednesday) will be our travel day. Flights to Lexington seem to be plentiful and generally economical. Rehearsals will start Thursday morning June 1st and will continue all day Friday. We will be performing at the GABB festival on Saturday, June 3, in Danville. Our performances will include a full concert band, as well as a jazz band/combo. We are planning to end our reunion with a breakfast/brunch social Sunday morning.
The Great American Brass Band Festival is an annual, open-air and family friendly festival, and features a day long lineup of bands on Saturday starting at noon. We also have an opportunity to participate in the event’s parade on Saturday morning in downtown Danville, KY. The parade is only a half mile in length.
We are very excited to have renowned jazz trombonist and AAAB alumnus Wycliffe Gordon return as our featured soloist, as well as our newly appointed principal conductor, Russ Mikkelson from The Ohio State University.
More details to follow. We can’t wait to see everyone again.
