LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)  – The Board of Directors of the La Crosse Concert Band voted unanimously to cancel all concerts for the remainder of the season due to COVID-19 concerns.

“The safety of our players, our staff, our audience, and our guest soloists has to be the highest priority. Even if we could devise a social distancing plan for the band and trust that our audience would follow social distancing guidelines, there are also still too many unknowns regarding the availability of rehearsal and performance spaces,” Board Member Abbie Leithold-Gerzema said.

Players will receive details through email at a later date regarding the annual meeting in July.
