Community concert band being formed for Manteca

A community band is forming for adults from Manteca and the surrounding areas who wish to rehearse and perform in a concert band with other musicians who love making music. 

The band — a joint collaboration between Delta College and Manteca Unified School District — will begin meeting in January on Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at East Union High School. 

The Manteca Area Community Band will be open to anyone who has at least high school level experience on flute, clarinet, saxophones, horn, trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba or percussion. It will be directed by former Manteca High Band Director Anthony Dahl, who currently serves as the Music Coordinator for Manteca Unified Schools and is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Music at Delta College. 

 The band will be holding a fall “meet and greet” on Monday, Nov. 11. at 7 p.m. at the East Union High School Band Room. For more information visit the band website at or email Anthony Dahl at
