SMC Emeritus

Concert Band


Since we have not been able to hold live performances during the COVID year, the SMC Emeritus Concert Band has put together this virtual performance of Hillside March by Randall D. Standridge. It is a fitting tribute to Founding Emeritus Concert Band Director Wallace Stanley Umber.
