Since picking up his baton ten years ago, Justin Raines has led by a key principle: to leave the band in better condition than he found it. As Artistic Director, Justin grew the band from a struggling ensemble to a successful organization, from twelve members to over 75.
As Justin retires, your donation to the Endowment will honor Justin's legacy, sustain our mission, and support the band's continued growth for many years to come.
