Bob Carlson says goodbye after 44 years of music education

Posted: Updated:

It has been a week full of gratitude and some bittersweet goodbyes for one long time band director in Sioux Falls. After 44 years in music education, hundreds gathered to say thank you and good luck to retiring Lincoln Band Director Bob Carlson.

A concert Thursday at the Washington Pavilion paid tribute to the retiring director who will now pass on the reigns to his son Dan.

We caught up with Bob at a reception ceremony this afternoon who says he is happy to be at this point in his life.

While it's bittersweet to say goodbye to what he loved, he knows this is the right time.

"It's time for some new people to come in, for Dan to take over the reigns. It'll be good for the program in the long run. I wouldn't change a thing if I had to do it all over again," LHS band director Bob Carlson said.

Carlson looks forward to spending some of his down time doing fundraising work and having the opportunity to travel.
