Greg Alfonso joined the Prince William Community Band shortly after its inception in 1996, and has served several terms as its Librarian, during which time the music library has grown to include over 330 works for concert band. Mr. Alfonso’s leadership helped to establish the organization’s policies and procedures for acquisition and handling of sheet music, among the Band’s most important assets.
Greg has actively participated in instrumental music since the sixth grade, abandoning trumpet after a year to pursue the euphonium. He was Drum Major of the North Central High School marching band in his hometown of Indianapolis, IN. He was also one of very few students selected into North Central’s Symphonic Wind Ensemble as a sophomore. This band consistently achieved superior ratings in Division I of the Indiana School Music Association’s annual festival competition, and played for visiting President Jimmy Carter. For several years, Mr. Alfonso also studied organ. While earning a degree in Computer Science, he was a member of the Purdue University “All-American” Marching Band, and Purdue’s Concert, Collegiate, and Ceremonial Bands.
Greg is active in his local church, where he coordinates a team of sound technicians to plan and manage sound reinforcement for church and private events. Greg’s other interests include hiking, bicycling, and local history. One day he would like to learn guitar, piano, drum set, orchestration, and trombone. Mr. Alfonso has been a resident of Manassas for the past 25 years, where he works as a software engineer for a large aerospace and electronics technology corporation.
