  2. BulletDespite 8 inches of snow the day prior, the show did go on!  Our annual Winter Concert took place in the Papillion-LaVista High Scool auditorium on February 16, 2003.  It was a wonderful concert, featuring the talents of two guest performers:  Trombone soloist TSgt Tom Eckert from the USAF Heartland of America Band at Offutt Air Force Base; and vocal soloist Elaine Kalal Stoner in her 5th appearance with the PAC Band.  Tom played "Variations on 'Let Me Call You Sweetheart'", a piece he wrote.  The audience sat in awe at the speed at which he whipped out his "variations"!  Elaine sang the always popular "Star Dust", followed by George & Ira Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away From Me".  She then led the audience in a "Patriotic Sing-Along", which included the appearance of a 60-foot U.S. flag during "It's a Grand Old Flag" - that brought the audience to its feet.  We finished the concert with a beautiful arrangement of "The Star Spangled Banner".  In the high school cafeteria, the PAC Band Dixieland Band performed for those eating spaghetti during the annual Lion's Club Spaghetti Feed fund-raiser.

  3. BulletDespite the threat of rain & an unusually cool August evening, we had one of our largest crowds of the year at our Concert in the Park on August 18, 2002.  Over 200 people sat in lawn chairs or on blankets to listen to marches, John Williams movie music, a waltz & a polka, and an expressive spiritual.  The PAC Band appreciated the enthusiastic standing ovation at the end, which encouraged us to play one last march as an encore.

  4. BulletThe PAC Band performed the music for the "march in" of over 800 athletes at the National Junior Olympics on Wednesday, July 24, 2002 at the Burke High School stadium.  Three superb trumpet players from various organizations joined us to help "beef up" our sound in the large stadium.  Thank-you to them as well as the 34 members of the PAC Band who volunteered to play a mid-week, evening performance!  We played a number of marches and patriotic music.  We would also like to thank the local organizers of the National Junior Olympics for their generous donation to the PAC Band!

  5. BulletFor the fourth year (including a previous "rain-out"), the PAC Band provided the music for the opening ceremonies for the Sarpy County Relay for Life sponsored by the American Cancer Society on Friday, June 21, 2002 on the Bellevue West High School track.  A strong breeze played havoc on our sound, making it difficult to hear across the track, but the applause by the nearby walkers on the track showed the sound was getting out!  It was a hot evening, so thanks to all those who participated.

  6. BulletPapillion Days, our city's annual community celebration (organized & sponsored by the Papillion Community Foundation), usually keeps the PAC Band busy, and this year was no exception.  Friday night, June 14, 2002, the PAC Band's Dixieland Band played an hour's worth of great Dixieland music to a very appreciative crowd.  The following day, a small group of 15 from the PAC Band rode on the back of a truck in the Papillion Days Parade playing Karl King marches to the enthusiastic crowd along the route.  Finally, on Sunday, June 16, the full PAC Band performed in front of over 200 people sitting at picnic tables and in lawn chairs.  In addition to enjoying the music, the crowd also lined up to get some great dessert from the St Paul United Methodist Church Ice Cream Social in the adjoining pavilion.  A big thanks to all those participating in the three performances - you really help to put the "celebrate" in this community celebration!  Also, thank you to Ken Molzer (our Director) & Nancy Moore (clarinet) for volunteering their time serving in the Papillion Community Foundation's Information Booth.

  7. BulletThe PAC Band Brass Choir performed at "An Evening of Brass," sponsored by Grace University on Tuesday, May 7, 2002 at Brookside Church.  This was the first time our Brass Choir has performed with other Brass Choirs, and Ken Molzer (PAC Band Director) had the following to say: "Thank you and congratulations on a very fine performance and representing our band in such an outstanding way!"   The following members performed at the concert:
    Gary Jack - Trumpet                Dave Kulisek - Trumpet
    Dick Kaiser - Trumpet & Baritone     Jeff Tasker - French Horn
    Bob Wills - French Horn             Rick Turner - Trombone
    Andy Walters - Tuba
    Thanks also to Carol Curry (French Horn) who devoted a number of hours to our rehearsals, but had to bow out at the last minute due to a sudden, serious illness in her family.  Special thanks go out to Bob Wills & Andy Walters who stepped in at the last minute (to replace Carol Curry & Tom Sibbitt). Despite practicing with us for only 45 minutes (3 days before the concert), they both played superbly, not missing a beat!!!  Thanks Bob & Andy!  A few other PAC Band members performed at the concert for the Nebraska Wind Symphony, playing some outstanding Brass selections: Tony Holland (trumpet), Gene Brong (trombone), Cindy Schram (trombone), and Jim Kuehl (tuba - last-minute substitute for Tuba Tom).  It truly was an "Evening of Brass"!

  8. BulletOur annual Winter Concert, Sunday, February 17, 2002, took place on a beautiful, sunny day, in the Papillion-LaVista High School Auditorium.  The theme for the concert, "Americans We," was well rooted in the selection of marches, hymns, and popular songs from some of our country's best known composers and arrangers.  Making the afternoon even more special were the guest performers who joined us:  Mr. Rob McCartney and Ms. Jamie Godby.  Rob, an anchorman for KETV-7 in Omaha (and former baritone player at Papillion Junior High), narrated the word's to Copland's "Lincoln Portrait" while the PAC Band performed "Lincoln Legacy."  He topped off the superb performance by re-appearing on-stage dressed as Lincoln, to finish the narration.  Jamie, an actor on numerous local stages (and former clarinet player at LaVista Junior High, as well as drum major at Papillion-LaVista High School) sang two pieces to the accompaniment of "her 55-piece band" (the PAC Band, of course).  Her performance of "As Time Goes By" conjured up memories of Bogart & Bergman in "Casablanca," and conjured up applause when Ken Molzer (the PAC Band director) danced with her on-stage during the musical interlude.  She then put a "smile" on the audience with her upbeat rendition of "Put on a Happy Face."  The PAC Band deeply appreciates the professional talents shared by our special guests and looks forward to performing with them again -- THANK YOU Rob & Jamie!!!  The concert ended with Sousa's always popular "Stars and Stripes Forever."  The PAC Band received a standing ovation from the over 200 members of the audience -- always appreciated from our "hometown" crowd!

  9. BulletSunday, September 9, 2001, was another beautiful day for a concert and a walk -- a Walk-A-Thon, that is!  The Papillion Junior Women's Club sponsored and organized a successful fund raising event which raised over $1400 for the Walnut Creek Amphitheater.  The PAC Band whole-heartedly appreciates and thanks the Papillion Junior Women's Club for donating their time, skill, and enthusiasm toward this community project!  Those who participated in the Walk-A-Thon were able to hear the tunes played by the PAC Band, the Papillion-LaVista High School Band, and the Nebraska Wind Symphony's Swingtones, as they walked the 3-mile loop around the lake throughout the afternoon.  The only way the event could have been better is if these performances were actually taking place in the Amphitheater.  With continued community support, it will happen soon!!! 

  10. BulletThe final "Concert in the Park" for 2001, on August 16, 2001.  This concert in the City Park was on a beautiful Sunday evening -- clear skies, setting sun, mid-70's. light breeze, low humidity!  Over 200 people set up their lawn chairs, or sat in the grass, to hear a nice variety of music (including TWO Karl King marches for an encore).  The Band really appreciated the standing ovation from their friends, family, and neighbors!
