Hayward Municipal Band

By Simon Wong

Hayward Municipal Band will begin its 2010 summer concert series on Sunday, June 20. Founded in 1957 by two Hayward Maintenance employees, Ed Mendonca and Tony Nunes, the 40-piece ensemble, including conductor Kathy Morelli-Maier, has performed annually for 42 years. The musicians hail from all walks of life - school teachers, lawyers and doctors - who play for pleasure and the opportunity to mingle with professional performers with other bands and orchestras. Band members, who sight-read proficiently, are recruited through referrals when openings arise.

The band has a full woodwind section (flutes, clarinets, oboes, bassoons and saxophones), brass section (trumpets, French horns, baritones, trombones, tubas), percussion, string bass player and vocalist. Widely known and sought for events, the City's band has participated in Veterans Day parades, played for more than 50 years on Memorial Day at Lone Tree Cemetery and participated in the Alameda County Fair.

Bring a picnic meal, blankets, chairs and friends to the Tony Morelli Bandstand in Hayward Memorial Park (behind the Hayward Plunge), 24176 Mission Boulevard, Hayward, to hear the band perform popular, big band, jazz, musicals, Latin, classical tunes and more on Sundays from June 20 to July 25. There is no admission charge.
