With the large number of musicians coming out of the excellent high school music programs in Long Beach and the many Long Beach veteran musicians returning from World War II, Mr. Son saw the need for a volunteer ensemble in Long Beach that would provide performance opportunities to wind and percussion players who do not perform for a living. With this in mind he founded the Long Beach Community Band, which soon grew and has flourished. Now in our 67th year, the Long Beach Community Band continues to provide a wind ensemble experience for the non-professional musicians of Long Beach and neighboring communities.
