Musicians needed for Mercer Island Summer Celebration marching band
A marching band for the Island's annual Summer Celebration is being organized by Islander Bert Pound, who was appointed to the task by the city arts and special events coordinator as he felt that the parade would not be a parade without a marching band. Island musicians who would like to march in the Summer Celebration parade on July 10 should contact Pound. For those musicians who need to borrow an instrument, Pound may be able to assist in finding one. Arrangements for the loan of music, instrumentation and rehearsal locations will be made with Parker Bixby, Mercer Island High School band director, once a marching band has been assembled. Pound can be reached at (206) 232-0762.
