History


In 1958, Harry Summers began a summer music program as an instruction for high school students who would be participating in his band the following fall. The popularity of his program broadened later to include both elementary, intermediate and high school students eager to begin lessons on brass, woodwind and percussion instruments. This became the "summer band school" which allowed all students to not only take lessons but to play in a summer band experience. In 1961 Daniel Harpster joined Harry Summers to continue this practice to include three to four weeks of instruction for a nominal fee. In the early 1970's the program increased again to include string students with additional financial and instrumental support from the members of the Warren Civic Orchestra and the Philomel Club.
