Clarkston Community Band back on stage June 13

The Clarkston Community Band (CCB), under the direction of Shelley Schwaderer Roland, has announced its next performance on Tuesday, June 13, at the Clarkston Junior High School Performing Arts Center, 6595 Waldon Road.
The 7 p.m. concert is free and open to the public with at-will donations accepted at the door.
High school senior scholarships will be awarded during the performance and light refreshments will be served after the concert.
The program will feature special guest conductors Joe Dobos, the band director for 40 years at Lapeer East High School and Oakland Christian School, Mike Yaros, director of bands at Marlette Schools, and Dane White, Clarkston High School sophomore and marching band drum major.
Concert selections will include (but are not limited to): “The Sound of Music” by Rogers & Hammerstein, “English Folk Song Suite” by Ralph Vaughn Williams, music from Florence Price (one of the first American woman composers to have works performed by symphony orchestras), and a selection by John Phillip Sousa.
The audience can also expect some delightful musical surprises during the performance.
In addition to musician dues and concert donations, CCB is financially supported by corporate donations, including those from platinum sponsor PEA Group and gold sponsors Regiani Holistic Dental Center, Pro-Active Chiropractic & Wellness, and Polaris Private Wealth.
Proceeds are used to provide scholarships to graduating high school seniors and purchase new music for future performances.
The band was founded in 1890, making it one of the longest continuously running community bands in the country. It operates entirely with volunteers, including local high school students, giving them a special outlet to develop their musical talent.
The CCB is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and all donations are tax-deductible. To become an individual or corporate sponsor, contact the Clarkston Community Band at
