In July, the alumni band will be traveling to Michigan to honor former director Don Wilcox. My tour company, All About Destinations will be handling all of the arrangements. The band will perform a concert ("A Tribute to Don Wilcox") in Northport, MI where Mr. Wilcox currently lives. This concert will tentatively feature the Northport Community Band as well. Mr. Wilcox was the conductor of the NCC for several years. The tour will be 4 days/3 nights and include a stay in Detroit, a visit to the Henry Ford Museum, a 2-night stay in Traverse City and a full day to explore one of America's favorite tourist destinations... Mackinac Island (ferry ride included). This tour is open to all WVU Bands alumni whether you are a member of the alumni band or not. If you had Mr. Wilcox as a director, this is your chance to give back to a man who shaped many of our lives. If you did not have Mr. Wilcox as a director, this is an opportunity to meet him and also say thank you for setting the standard that the band has enjoyed for the past 53 years! Former director and current alumni band director John Hendricks will be conducting the concert. Registration for this tour will open on January 8, 2024. The participation limit for this tour is 220. However, after one motorcoach has been filled, additional participants will be put on a waiting list until a second, third and fourth bus (hopefully) can be filled.
