Listen to the Salem High School Band Concerts of the 1950s-1960s

Listen to the melodious sounds of the Salem High School concert bands from the 1950s and 1960s led by Howard "Doc" Pardee. Thanks to Doc’s foresight in recording the concerts and the generosity of his children and SHSAA alumni, SHSAA now has more than 15 hours of SHS concert band music online including classical, big band, jazz, marches, and Broadway tunes (scroll down for more concerts).
