Bonnie Benjamin, Tenor sax

Teacher; attracted to band by the director- of course! GMB has always been a family affair!

Once upon a time… Of course the story of ‘Mr. & Mrs. B’ begins with band - The Heidelberg College Marching Band in Tiffin, Ohio. Skipping ahead to our married life together - Al was part of the GMB, so naturally I joined too! Even after the birth of our children, the band tradition continued. Sheila Kopec and the girls would watch our children during summer concerts at the band shell. During our 13 years at Camp Wiyaka, Al did the summer concerts by himself while I kept the campfires burning. I am back with my tenor sax each week and ‘The B’s’ can accurately use the cliché “We’re making beautiful music together!”
