‘Hail to the Victors’

I would like to thank Nevers’ Band with conductor Kevin Swift for the total surprise of the band honoring me with a rendition of the “Hail to the Victors,” the University of Michigan Fight Song for the Wolverines. I was totally surprised and so pleased with this march.

I have enjoyed the music of Nevers’ Band especially when they play the famous Sousa and Fillmore marches since the late 1950s, when they were a marching band and presenting the music at the annual Fourth of July celebration.

We, in Concord should be so lucky to have this band in the city presenting excellent concerts from June to August. Thank you Kevin Swift and the Nevers’ Band for a great season of music and counting down to next June for your concert season to start.
