Dan Diamond, Percussion Soloist

Dan Diamond
Dan Diamond joined the Concord Band 47 years ago, and is still having fun as its senior member. He has been enamored of the snare drum since 1953 and has worked to improve his skills since 1958, when Springfield Symphony percussionist Warren Myers told him that his roll sounded like a bushel of apples falling down a flight of stairs. He has an SB and PhD from MIT’s Sloan School of Management and cofounded Harvard Software and Facsimilies, Ltd. In retirement Dan spends most of his time doing the kinds of things that earned him the Band’s Lifetime Service Award in 2009. Since January, he has been designing the Dream Center for the Performing Arts and has found the life of an amateur architect most agreeable.
