Who We Are
The Mat-Su Concert Band is the largest and oldest musical organization in the Mat-Su Borough and provides adult musicians from across the Valley and surrounding areas in Alaska the opportunity for musical expression and enjoyment beyond high school and college, promoting artistic enrichment in our concerts, and preserving the rich repertoire and cultural history of the wind band.
Originally from Mitchell South Dakota, Mr. Huyck earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Ball State University with a music specialist degree in trumpet and voice. He studied for his masters at the esteemed Vandercook College of Music in Chicago.
The Mat-Su Concert Band was formed in 1984 by Hank Hartman. The band began with approximately a dozen members and met at Wasilla Grade school which is now Wasilla City Hall.
The following are all live performances from our Spring 2016 concert. Stay tuned for many more recordings from Pride of Alaska band to come.
