The evening will begin with music pieces from the three school bands. The Pagosa Springs High School jazz band will follow with several lively selections that it has prepared for your enjoyment. Last on the concert will be the Community Band, which will play pieces from American composers themed around the great outdoors. The program will offer a nice variety of music and talent from our community. 

This concert is hosted by the Pagosa Springs Instrumental Music Society, or PSIMS.
