Papillion Area Concert Band Papillion Days FinaleSunday, Jun 20, 2021 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The Papillion Area Concert Band (PAC Band) was organized in the summer of 1986. Mr. Ken Molzer, the founder and director of the band, surveyed the area with the aid of the Papillion Parks and Recreation Department to determine if there were enough interested musicians to form a community band. The response was overwhelming and the first two concerts were held in the city park that summer. Since that time, enthusiasm has grown. The band not only performs during the summer in the park, but also rehearses once a month during the school year and performs a winter concert in conjunction with the Papillion Lions Club at the Papillion-La Vista High School Auditorium.
A Board of Directors was formed in the spring of 1987. Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws were filed as a Non-Profit Corporation in the State of Nebraska. It was agreed by members of the Board of Directors that the purpose of the PAC Band would be to promote, encourage, and increase the knowledge, appreciation and practice of the art of instrumental music. There are no auditions for membership, which is open to any musician beyond high school who enjoys playing band music. Rehearsals are normally once per month, with extra rehearsals prior to a concert, as needed.
The PAC Band is funded primarily through donations. For more information about the PAC Band, please contact (402) 597-2041.
