It is our sad duty to report that our beloved, dapper baritone, Michael Beach, passed from this world on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at about 11:00AM. He was a unique, talented performer and a great friend. Irreplaceable. We sorely miss him, he left us with wonderful memories since joining the band in 1984.


Michael's memorial is at 2:00 PM this Sunday, December 1, at All Pilgrim's Church, 500 Broadway East, Seattle, WA 98102. The Cornucopia Concert Band will play and act as pallbearers.


Enjoy the Cornucopia Concert Band! The town bands of the late 19th and early 20th century provide the inspiration for the structure and style of this Seattle based 24+ piece group which performs music circa 1890-1930, the era when band concerts, jazz and ragtime were enjoying immense popularity.

The band is available for era dances, celebrations, rigid air ship comissionings, pipe organ dedications, steam boat gatherings, town concerts, and other such occasions where family oriented musical merriment is desired.
