Comment from Timothy D. Powhida, OWMS Band Director, regarding 2015 Lake George Community Band Festival

Hello Everyone,
I wish to send my most heartfelt thank you to all of our bands...please share this with your band. The 2015 festival was a huge success and couldn't have been so without your sacrifice and dedication to making it great! The quality of music, fantastic soloists and wonderful directing was the best ever. I have been a part of the festival in one way or another for several years now. I am very proud to have been festival chairman this year. All of our band contacts and directors were great to work with and it was really nice finally put a face with some of names.
I did not have any illusions of myself taking over and not having any problems at all. I have a list of things that I would like to see the committee and myself improve upon for future festivals. I know there were some issues to be sorted out...I will deal with that in a later email...after I meet with my committee.
I really just want this email to be about the music and musicians. I can't imagine a better day of wonderful music and we really can't beat the location.

From the bottom of my heart...THANK YOU!
Timothy D. Powhida
OWMS Band Director

Thank you for a great concert.  I hear all positive things from the audience.  Hopefully this concert was rewarding for you as well.  I look forward to seeing you all again on the 18th.  We will start on a whole new program for spring.  Thanks again for all of your hard work, and congratulations.

Comment from Jim Walton, regarding Veterans concert at Welte Hall, November 9, 2014

Ken and PWE -  Wow!  What a solid concert and job well done!   Certainly some very challenging pieces, but we all rose to the occasion and pulled it off to the best of our abilities!   Kudos to everyone for the hard work and effort put forth, especially over the past few weeks pulling it all together.   What a great hall to perform in as well.   Thanks to you Ken for leading and conducting the band so well.  Sure looked like you were having some fun up there, and enjoying it as well.  Thanks again!  Last bomber over the hill, Jim
