Who We Are!
We are The Repasz Band! We are seventy-five people from all walks of life and in most of life’s ages and stages!
We are Musicians with a capital “M”! And whether we are accomplished amateur musical enthusiasts or professional musicians, we are committed both to excellence in performance as well as expressing the joy of music!
First and foremost we are committed to bringing our audiences the best, most enjoyable musical experiences possible! We are The Repasz Band!
What We Do!
We bring to musical life old American park band shells with crowds lounging around on lawn chairs under the balmy summer sun. Red, white, and blue bunting is unfurled all around us as Old Glory soars above against a sapphire sky to the strains of the Star Spangled Banner and The Stars and Stripes Forever! And then later, the fireworks start…
We take the magnificent opulent stage at Williamsport’s own Community Arts Center in formal performance uniforms to raise soaring melodies and gorgeous harmonies of the absolute best in contemporary, popular, and traditional concert band music!
Parading with an international audience and the freshly luminous faces of Little League Baseball, we bounce the strains of Take Me Out To The Ball Game off center city buildings, as Williamsport Welcomes The World!
We stand in heartfelt pride of American patriotism and provide the musical context for solemn Flag Day observances as we have for decades. We stand in musical solidarity with our Veterans and their associations as often as we can, and are honored and privileged to be able to do so.
We make happy music on the lawns of various local hospitals, retirement centers, and nursing homes as we enjoy bringing a little pleasure and diversion to all our dear friends and family there.
We share bubbly musical cheer and jingling holiday spirits every yuletide season… whether it’s our holiday concert itself, or providing a musical escort for Santa as he arrives from the North Pole, or participation in many of the instrumental caroling groups supported by and with our Repasz Band members, we are delighted to join in “the chorus” every year as the snowflakes fly and joy is in the air.
We are The Repasz Band… we make music!
