YACCB is an organization of volunteers dedicated to the continuation of a community band program in Youngstown, Ohio area.
Followers and friends of the YACCB,
This started out to be a wonderful year of music dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Roaring Twenties in music. But in late February and early March, everything came to a halt. This "everything" continues into our Christmas season. We all will miss bringing the Christmas spirit via our glorious sounds to many in assisted living centers, churches, and shoppers. But most of all the real sadness for me will be the cancellation of what would have been our 10th annual Holiday Concert Of Giving. Both the YACCB and Stambaugh Chorus and their director, Hae-Jong Lee, have had a commitment to bring a wonderful concert, filling Stambaugh Auditorium with holiday music, for the sole purpose of raising money for the Second Harvest Food Bank. We've raised about $42,000 in 9 years. The absence of this concert for all performers will be felt deep in everyone's heart. Especially mine.
So, If you are a loyal attendee of this concert, please make a donation to the Second Harvest Food Bank, in the name of the Holiday Concert Of Giving. Heaven knows that the food bank needs this more than ever this year. This band will continue - sometime and somewhere - in 2021. We all want this situation to be over. If the summer finds us playing our music, the theme will be "The Roaring BACK Twenties." And the 10th annual Holiday Concert Of Giving will take place in December of 2021.
To all followers and friends, be safe and have wonderful holidays with your friends and families, whether you are physically with them or not. Continue to follow this band and we'll promise to provide you with concerts you'll love.
All concerts for summer 2020 season have been cancelled. Our Annual Holiday Concert of Giving scheduled for December 13 has also been cancelled.
We are working to get back to our regular rehearsals and concerts in 2021. Stay tuned!
