Drury Band 90th 1923-2013
Memorabilia celebrating the 90th anniversary of
the Drury Band is on display.
One of the oldest secondary school bands in the country,
our local high school band was founded in 1923.
At that time community and fraternal bands were popular.
Drury blossomed into the largest high school band, played
for Williams graduation, welcomed John Philip Sousa to listen
and conduct, and took trips to New York City, where recordings
were made, and to Washington DC where they played for the
president – all in the 1920’s!
Souvenirs from the World’s Fair as well as music
festivals from Toronto to Disney World are on display.
The exhibit will be displayed
our first floor temporary gallery.
