History

In late 1998 a small group of local musicians led by Marian Craig, a librarian and flutist, met with the idea of forming a community concert band. Julie Porter-Hickok came up with the name “Kingman Concert Band.” The new band had its first rehearsal in March of 1999 with one Flute, one Clarinet, and one Euphonium under the direction of Les Krause. By May 5th of that year the band performed its first concert, a ‘Cinco de Mayo’ celebration for the Downtown Merchants Association.
