It is with sadness that we report the passing of our founder Joseph Charles "Butch" Antal.  Butch passed away at his home on Friday, November 13, 2015 from complications of cancer.  In 1981 Butch founded The Columbia Community Band which continues to be a vital part of Columbia's musical culture.  Our love and sympathy go out to his wife Linda and to all family members.
