SFLGFB will be performing: “What’s Old is New Again!” featuring the modern premiere of Sousa’s Among my Souvenirs – Humoresque.  Many of the pieces that will be played were composed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition (the San Francisco World’s Fair of 1915). SFLGFB is committed to reviving, publishing and recording the music of that powerfully important event – What’s Old is New Again is a performance you will not want to miss.

Founded in 1977, the mission and purpose of ACB is to encourage and foster adult concert, community, municipal and civic bands, and to ensure that each musician who wishes to perform may have that opportunity; every community may have the opportunity to take civic pride in its band; and citizens of the world community may enjoy live performances of band music. With a membership that includes individuals, bands and corporations, since its inception, ACB has been dedicated to serving the needs of adult instrumental musicians that perform in and/or lead adult concert bands. SFLGFB is proud to be performing at the ACB 37th Annual Convention – hope to see you there!
