In 1992, he left the service to return to Music Education as the Band Director of Desoto County High School. Under his direction, the Desoto Band received the first superior rating in their history at FBA District Concert Festival. In 1995, he moved back to his hometown of Pensacola to take the reins as Director of Bands and Performing Arts Department Chair at his Alma Mater, Escambia High School. He received his Master’s in Music Education from the University of Florida in 2010. During his 26 years at Escambia, he served as the High School Band Team Leader for the School District as well as the Florida Bandmaster’s Association District 1 Chair. He is also been an adjudicator for FBA and other independent competitions in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Doug Holsworth’s marching band “The Pride” at Escambia became well known throughout the region for creative, theatrical halftime shows and excellence in performance, with an unbroken string of Superior ratings and many 1st place trophies during his tenure.

HISTORY OF THE PENSACOLA CIVIC BAND 14

WRITTEN BY GARY BEADLE

In 1969, James Etherton joined the faculty of Pensacola Junior College, having been the band director at Escambia High School. One of his goals was to establish a band, sponsored by the college, in which adults from the surrounding community could continue to enjoy playing their instruments. The idea was further discussed with Laurel Brownlee, then band director of Escambia High School, and the late Dr. Eugene Gonzalez of the UWF music faculty. In the spring of 1971, they decided to form the band and named it the Pensacola Civic Band. After contacting local musicians and with the help of college and high school students, the band began rehearsing for an outdoor concert for the Fiesta of Five Flags in June 1971. The first performance took place at Plaza Ferdinand in downtown Pensacola along with several unexpected highlights including a deafening flyover by the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels, followed by a high school marching band passing by and topped off by a man running from the police who was apprehended and handcuffed behind the percussion section. Nevertheless, the band finished the concert. Plans for the early years called for two informal indoor concerts each year to be performed in the Fine Arts auditorium at PJC and one informal outdoor concert each spring. The first concert was held on Sunday afternoon, November 7, 1971, and was free to the public. There persisted the problem that band directors wanted to play their instruments instead of directing the Civic Band. As a result, no one really wanted to become the director. The early concerts were directed by Jim Etherton, Laurel Brownlee and Dr. Gene Gonzalez. Starting in 1975, others were asked to conduct, including Dr. Joyce Sidorfsky of the PJC music faculty; John Henley, the Gulf Breeze High School band director, Tim Willis, the band director at Escambia High School, Richard Neimeyer, the King Middle School band director, and Dr. Robert Whitmore, head of the PJC Music and Theatre department. By the spring of 1978, the band consisted of 60 members with a stable membership evolving. Guest conductors as well as band members took turns with the baton. Thanks to an agreement between the University of West Florida and the city of Pensacola the band played its first concert on the stage of the Saenger Theater in 1979. This was well before the great renovation of the Saenger we enjoy today. For several years, Jim Etherton, John Henley and James Ball, a new member of the PJC faculty, were the directors. In 1987, Don Snowden joined the PJC music faculty, coming from Foley High School as band director. Since then he has led the PSC band, as well as rising to become the head of the Department of PSC Performing Arts.


Pensacola State College provides the rehearsal space, conductor, and logistics for the Pensacola Civic Band. Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00pm in the Sidney G. Kennedy rehearsal room. Our members pay $20 per semester (no free lunch) to be in the band and we greatly appreciate the financial support of all those who have joined the Friends of the Civic Band. Every year we support music education through a scholarship fund for students at Pensacola State College and we also grant summer music camp scholarships for eligible high school students.

HISTORY OF THE PENSACOLA CIVIC BAND

With a stable membership that has, at times, approached over 100 musicians, the Pensacola Civic Band continues to provide Pensacola and the surrounding communities with first class music at minimal cost. Our continued expansion includes performing at national conventions for theAssociation of Concert Bands in Gainesville, Florida and Lafayette, Louisiana, and twice hosting the national convention in Pensacola. Don Snowden has also served as national President of the Association of Concert Bands. In 2002, the band earned the prestigious Silver Scroll Award given to community bands which demonstrate high standards of excellence over several years. During 2009, the band played for King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain on the occasion of their visit to Pensacola for the 450th anniversary of Pensacola’s founding. Reciprocal concerts have been performed with community bands in Ft. Walton Beach, Fairhope, and Mobile. The summertime “Evenings in Olde Seville Square” series wouldn’t be complete without the PCB’s on-going participation. December’s Holiday Evening in Olde Seville Square has often been a venue for the band as well as occasional performances in downtown Pensacola preceding the Fourth of July Fireworks. In 2011, the band played at the outdoor celebration of Gulf Breeze turning 50. The band continues to perform Fall, December, and Spring concerts in the Fine Arts Auditorium of Pensacola State College and the Pensacola Saenger Theatre.
