LCCB Seeks New Home in Bluffton Area
10.7.2023

The LCCB is sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at USC-Beaufort. It has been serving the community with free concerts for the past 7 years.  The band’s repertoire includes classical concert band music, patriotic music, movie scores, and Broadway tunes.  Our concert season runs from the second week in September to the last week in April.  Time is growing short.  If you know of a large hall or other enclosed space that might fit the LCCB for rehearsals, please let us know.

Rehearsals to begin September 10, 2019
8.23.2023

I am happy to write to you with news of a temporary facility in which our band can practice.  This is the Baptist Church of Beaufort, 601 Charles St., Beaufort.  They are willing to let us use their fellowship hall on Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m..  Allison Sherwood, flute player in our band, is the music director at the church and has worked to make this happen for us.  Our thanks to Allison.

Our first practice will be on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.  Everyone will need to bring a stand that first night until we can have our stands delivered there.  Be sure to bring your folder.

Andrea Sisino, the executive director at OLLI, and David Carbone are working to arrange for the band to practice at Bluffton High School.  We hope that that will happen soon, but in the meantime, we are lucky to be able to practice at the Baptist church.  The advisory committee thanks all of you who helped with ideas for places for the band to practice.  Many, many leads were followed up over the summer.

Carolyn Christy

President
