Municipal Band dedicates concert to Price family

The Cameron Municipal Band Concert on Thursday June 14 was dedicated to the Price family as Cindy Price-Svehla played her final regular concert with the band. Cindy has been a life-long member of the band and has played clarinet for 44 years in the band. Svehla has been the prinicipal and solo clarinest for most of her 44 year tenure.

Svehla recently retired from the Liberty School District as a music educator, where she had a very successful studio of students and had a professional career as a clarinetist in the KC area for many years. Svehla and her husband are relocating in their retirement to Arizona.

Ann Goodwin-Clark, Director of the band, was unable to be in attendance but sent her brother Dave Goodwin a note to read to Svehla which bid her long time friend all the best and spoke of how music connected their families and will continue to connect them over the miles.

Svehla was presented with a vase by the band in gratitude of her many years with them. The engraving on the vase read, “Cameron Municipal Band Manager presented to Cindy Price Svehla for 45 years of devoted service to the Cameron Muncipal Band July 14, 2018

Svehla thanked the band and the community for their support over the years.

“Cameron, you have a really great thing here, don’t ever let it go away,” Svehla said.

During the concert vocalist Staci Harvey performed They Can’t Take that Away From Me and the Clarinet section was featured on Clarinet Escapade.
