Welcome to the Peninsula Symphonic Band!
It is such a great pleasure to serve as the Music Director for this amazing community band. The members are talented and friendly and work very hard to produce four to six quality concerts each year.
This year (2022) is a big one for the Peninsula Symphonic Band (PSB). Founded in 1990, the band will finally get to celebrate its 30th anniversary (postponed due to the pandemic). I am fortunate to serve as the fourth Music Director in the band’s thirty-two year history.
To honor this anniversary, the PSB has commissioned a new work by renowned composer Randall Standridge. The band will perform the World Premiere of this new work as part of its annual Veterans Day concert. Performing a piece that has been specifically written for the PSB will be a very exciting experience for all of us.
Membership in the band is open to any high school or adult musician who has a reasonable instrumental proficiency and the desire to join with other like-minded musicians to make great music. The ensemble rehearses on Monday evenings from 7 – 8:30 at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay. There are two seasons each year: April thru July and September thru December.
In addition to the symphonic band, we also have a big band which performs traditional jazz and swing favorites four to six times each year. These performances are held at venues that are designed for this type of musical ensemble and that offer food and a dance floor.
If you are a musician interested in participating, please don’t hesitate to contact me at:
I look forward to another exciting year and to seeing many of you at our concerts!
