RVSB Winter Concert

The size of the enthusiastic audience at Sunday's Raritan Valley Symphonic Band concert Musical War Horses and Holiday Classics illustrates that the RVSB has become better known and appreciated over the decades.

Additionally, a number of audience members took advantage of a new opportunity - a Pre-Concert Chat presented by RVSB Conductor Larry Markiewicz. During his half-hour multi-media presentation Mr. Markiewicz spoke about the music that was going to be presented during the afternoon's program, the composers, and the history behind both.

Also seen in this slideshow is the RVSB's interim Assistant Conductor Andrew Lawrence.

In Memoriam - Joe Morrison

The Raritan Valley Symphonic Band announced the establishment of the Joe Morrison Service Award in memory of Hillsborough's Joseph A. Morrison, Jr., who died on November 7th after a brief illness. Mr. Morrison served the RVSB for many years behind the scenes, he may have greeted you at the door of a concert, giving out programs and handling the donation box. His wife Audre is a charter band member.

The first honoree of this award is Joe Morrison.
