The Winona Municipal Band will be taking a little more time this summer to get started! The band was hopeful that it could resume programming on July 1, 2020. It is not yet ready to begin, but know things will start happening soon!
The Winona Municipal Band will perform on July 8, 2020, for the first performance of the 2020 season. In total, the band is hoping to also perform on July 22, 2020, and August 12, 2020. Due to COVID-19, the band will be a bit different.
For the audience, the band will announce some guidelines for social distancing, as well as having staff present to support all in making a safe choice. The band asks that attendees who choose to leave their cars wear masks. One tradition that the Municipal Band hopes may return is having audience members enjoy the performance from their cars. Band members have always loved the honking in response to a rousing performance.
The band will be making a few shifts to limit players as the bandshell is historic in nature, but not very large from a performance space. It will feature different groupings in presenting the concert. Look for the programming list to come out next week, on July 2, 2020.
