VALLEY SUMMER YOUTH BAND is an intensive six week program that targets Valley students, entering grades 7 through 10, who want to expand and enhance their playing skills in the context of professional leadership and a community band experience with their peers from the entire area.  This summer our youth band will be led by the wonderful Charles Carte.  Mr. Carte is a skilled musician and a popular teacher.  He is band and music director at Teeland Middle School.  2014 is Mr. Carte’s third year working in the band program of the Palmer Arts Council. 
The end product of the program is a high quality band, playing level appropriate and challenging music.  During the last three weeks of the band experience, the band will play concerts at community events and public places for the enjoyment of friends, family and the general public.  They will play at senior centers, post offices, public parks, Palmer Colony Days, Mid-Summer Art and Garden Faire, possibly the Governor’s Picnic, and a season ending concert at Colony High School theatre.  (A high level of parent participation will be needed to facilitate transportation of players and instruments.)
