Annandale Community Band

    The Annandale Community Band first started playing together in 1993 under the direction of Zane Schaefer.  When traveling with his job caused Zane to step down from the podium in 1994, Ken Rudolph took up the baton.  Ken directed for most of the next 20 years, along with Jennie Planer and Megan Hagberg, until 2013 when Barbara Jacobson took over. Both Ken and Zane currently play in the band.  

     The band usually performs six to ten times a year.  Some of their regular concerts are at the July 4th celebration, area nursing homes, the Annandale Business Expo, and Annandale's Concert in the Park series. They also perform in nearby towns.

    Practices are held on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Band Room at Annandale High School, 855 Hemlock Street East. Band members are not only from Annandale but also many nearby towns. If you play an instrument, please join us!  For more information contact either Ken Rudolph at 320-274-5487 or Barbara Jacobson at 320-274-2694.
