Decker joined the Community Band in 1987 and is an all-important member.
She started out playing the bass drum because the band needed one. Now
she not only plays the string bass, timpani, and sings, but also takes
care of many laborious jobs for the band. She's the one who types up the
list of members, promotes the band with the media, greets new members to
make them feel welcome, and takes care of many details.
Anita began her musical career in the 3rd grade
playing the clarinet. She began playing the string bass and timpani in
high school. Singing was also an early love for her and she became a voice
major in college. She's sung with many groups, including an auditorial
group. She uses her many talents at every concert, playing the bass and
timpani, and singing "The Star Spangled Banner."
We couldn't get along without her.
