The Tacoma Concert Band.

It’s quite something to have played in a community concert band for 20 years. Carolyn Freudenstein, who has played clarinet with the Tacoma Concert Band for just that long, is saying goodbye to the all-volunteer band this weekend in a concert at the Pantages Theater.

The concert combines the TCB with the Puget Sound Youth Wind Ensemble, playing music of Sousa, Mussorgsky, Copland, Stephen Foster and more. Founded eight years ago and first conducted by the TCB’s director Robert Musser, the PSYWE is a wind band for young players now led by Gerard Morris, director of bands at the University of Puget Sound.

After all of Carolyn’s dedication and leadership with TCB over the years, it’s really special to have her close this chapter…” says Nancy Musser.

The Tacoma Concert Band plays “Tacoma Concert Band and Friends,” featuring guest ensemble the Puget Sound Youth Wind Ensemble, at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 19. $16-$34. Pantages Theater, 901 Broadway, Tacoma. 253-591-5894, www.broadwaycenter.org, www.tacomaconcertband.org, www.eskimo.com/~psywe
