|About the CCCB|
Our mission is to foster a deeper understanding of the human experience through the study and performance of music and to provide the finest artistic, intellectual, and cultural experience possible for both the performer and the listener.
About the Band
The CCCB began in January of 2009, under the vision and direction of Sherie Grossman. The group rehearses at various places in West Wilson County like Mt. Juliet High School and Lebanon High School, and has the support of both schools' music departments and administration. They have performed for the community many times, including the free Summer Concert series at Charlie Daniels Park.
In the Spring of 2008, Mrs. Grossman approached the West Wilson Community Arts Alliance about supporting a Community Wind Ensemble. They were ecstatic, and plans began to start the group. The response has been overwhelming, and the group is now over 60 members ranging in age from 15 to over 60.
About the Conductor
Sherie Grossman received her Bachelor of Music in clarinet performance from the University of California Irvine in 1996. She continued on to obtain a teaching certificate from California State University, Fullerton, and taught band and orchestra at the Middle School level for 7 years. During that time she completed a Masters degree in Conducting from Southern Oregon University's American Band College. After moving to Mt. Juliet in 2005, Sherie longed to continue her previous community band experience, but found that most required too much travel time. Hence, the CCCB was formed! Sherie now serves as the Assistant Band Director, Orchestra Director, and Assistant Choir Director at Mt. Juliet High School.
