Now in its 16th year of providing concerts in a variety of venues, this popular group is under the direction of Dr. Thomas Root, head of the band program at Weber State University, assisted by associate director Dr. Darrell Lund.
The band’s repertoire includes traditional band concert music by such composers as Copland, Gould, Bernstein, Webber, Williams and Holst, plus Sousa marches, patriotic songs, show tunes and movie theme scores.
Formed in 1993 by executive order of the mayor of Ogden City to provide musical entertainment for the community, the band has performed at such varied events as the Utah Arts Festival, the National Motor Coach Association convention, the national Veterans of Foreign Wars convention, and for the arrival of the 2002 Winter Olympics torch in Ogden, just prior to the games. The band has also performed in Germany (on two occasions for the Hof Festival) and at a music festival in Taiwan.
