Thanks from our audience:

Summer Band

On a Sunday July afternoon
My friend Karl Bach conducts
Such a medley of songs
But “Carousel” is so touching.
It brings tears to my eyes,
So poignant,
So restrained, so romantic.
This consummate musician
Leads the band in a wondrous series of songs.
As I survey the summer scene:
Cargo-carrying ships passing,
Sailboats, a kayak,
Ferries back and fro,
And above me towering douglas firs and lacy western red cedar
In this lovely temperate summer sunshine
It is the closest thing to heaven.
I’m surrounded by families,
Children funning forth with their hair streaming behind
Old folks tapping out the time to melodies.
Thank you maestro and your fellow musicians
You make Port Townsend the community it really is:
People all assembled together
To enjoy the outdoor summer
Which blesses our peninsula on a peninsula.

"I wanted to express my appreciation to you and your PT Summer Band for the phenomenal and stirring service that you gave and presented on Memorial Day (2012). A lot of folks and Legion Members have told me the experience and the program was one of the best ever and that they were honored to be with us on the occasion. Your music and patriotic involvements always make these programs the BEST! Thank you! I am very honored to be a participant in such great company. "

"A belated thanks to Karl and all of the band for the terrific Independence Day concert at the American Legion Hall. The band has never sounded better, and the selections were perfect. We appreciate all that you do in our community.

              Thanks so much,"
