Leader of the band: Ettle will be Valley Concert Band’s first woman conductor

When asked the first time, Cathy Ettle said no.

She didn’t want to conduct the Valley Concert Band. She prefers to play the saxophone, which she’s done for 18 years.

But the band lost its beloved conductor, Chris Anderson, to an unexpected death last December and the call went out for band members to fill in during its three summer’s Concert in the Park appearances.
