The Amador County Concert Band proudly represented Northern California in June 2010, when it was selected to perform in Washington D.C. for the National Community Concert Band Sousa Festival, a salute to the legendary march king, John Philip Sousa. Under former musical director Ernie Kapphahn, the band gained very high recognition and since the band’s return, has gained new members, some traveling from as far away as
Placerville, El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, and Sacramento.
The band also performed this year at the Golden Gate Park Band Festival in June and played under the newly refurbished band shell. The Amador County Concert Band represented our Northern California area, receiving a special recognition award for an outstanding performance.
