The Palmyra-Eagle Community Band
The Palmyra-Eagle Community Band, was formed in 1993 through the efforts of Band Manager, Alice Ventura. There were 4 musicians present at the first rehearsal. The first concert was presented on June 14th, Flag Day, in the village park. Over the years, the band has grown to over 30 members. Members are of all ages from retirees (some of whom had not played their instruments since their school days) to college and middle school students--from communities in our area to as far away as Madison. Under the direction of “Mr. Ed” Pierce of Fort Atkinson, musical selections range from marches to show tunes, familiar popular melodies to classical. We encourage anyone interested in dusting off the old horn to join us. Rehearsals are Monday evening, 7:00 pm, at the PEHS high school band room. Our concert schedule includes venues such as parks, retirement homes, churches, etc. throughout the spring and summer. Our Holiday Show in December closes out our season. The band is all volunteer and supported by contributions from local businesses, civic groups, private donations and the band members themselves. We are an incorporated 501(c)3 non-profit, tax exempt organization. Donations can be mailed to: Palmyra-Eagle Community Band, Inc., P.O. Box 215, Palmyra, WI 53156-0215.
