The Reading Civic Concert Band
is pleased to announce
Catherine Hofius is the new Music Director
Sunday, August 7 marked a new chapter for the Reading Civic Concert Band. Lucinda Ellert, who has lead the band for 16 years, took her final bow at our last Mother’s Day comedy-themed concert. Since moving to Winchendon, she has become busy conducting both Winchendon Winds, and also the Chelmsford Community Band.
After an extensive talent search, the baton has passed on to Catherine Hofius, a graduate of Georgia State University, with a Master’s Degree in Instrumental Conducting. She is currently Director of Bands for the Andover public school system, and has been rehearsing RCCB through July. Her inaugural concert was our summer Concert On The Common series, sponsored by the Reading Recreation Division.
