About the The Boeing Employees' Concert  Band

History

The Boeing Employees' Concert Band was formed in 1979, as a club in The Boeing Company Recreation Unit, through the  initial efforts of Matt Thornton. The first conductor was Howard Akers, a  composer/conductor and arranger who was respected as a fine musician throughout  the country. He also donated a large collection of music from his library as  editor of Carl Fisher Music Company.

The band plays a wide range of music from lively marches to show tunes, great  classics arranged for band and holiday music appropriate to the season.

A typical concert season for the band will include concerts in parks, schools  and many other events around the Puget Sound area. We are also pleased to  provide live entertainment to audiences who may not have many other  opportunities such as retirement centers, company events such as rollouts,  anniversaries, special deliveries, go-ahead parties and others where music would  be appropriate and appreciated.

Conductors

The Boeing Employees' Concert band is currently under the direction of Alexei Girsh.

Previous conductors of the band have been (from most recent),
Ron Friesen, David Wayne Waltman, Matt  Eisenhauer, JoeAnn Christen, and Howard Akers.
