Jack Milkovitz, Conductor

The Pineland Symphonic Band, formerly the "Crestwood Symphonette", is a symphonic wind ensemble which has been has been providing high quality musical entertainment for Ocean County residents in New Jersey for over thirty years .  Each season the band performs for community groups, retirement communities, civic events, and public schools in Ocean County and beyond. With a rigorous concert schedule the band continues the grand tradition of community bands that will take you back to the early days of the last century.

At that time in America every town of any size featured a community band which was a source of civic pride for the community. The tradition stemmed from the popularity of military bands in the mold of the band of John Phillip Sousa. They thrilled the nation and the world with stirring marches, overtures and popular songs.

Today in Ocean County the Pineland Symphonic Band continues this tradition under the direction of conductor Jack Milkovitz. Jack is known for seeking the nuances in symphonic band selections and directing the band to display them in performance. The result is stunning interpretations of marches, Broadway music, pop tunes and traditional jazz numbers.

The band is composed of virtuoso-quality instrumentalists including former members of the Marine Band, Army ensembles, symphonies, music teachers and other music enthusiasts who volunteer their time and talents to make the Pineland Symphonic Band the best in the symphonic band tradition.
