Da Capo Band performs one last time for 30th season

La Crosse group to play at Central High School Auditorium

A La Crosse musical group is practicing for their final performance of the season.

The Da Capo Band will be celebrating their 30th season next weekend at the Central High School Auditorium.

The band was formed in 1984 when a group of former and closet musicians picked up their instruments and got together.

The members of the group say it has been a great experience.

“It’s exciting because it almost becomes like family. We meet just about every Saturday and people here are from every walk of life,” said Da Capo Band President Barb Schultz.

Da Capo Band’s performance will be at 1:30 p.m. next Saturday and our very own Mike Thompson will be emceeing the event.

Any donations at the performance will go towards instrument repairs and the Play it Forward program, providing instruments for area students.
