Charles Conrad comes from a very long line of music retailers. Charles’ grandfather started the store in 1890 and it has been in the same location since. Having seen years of change in the music industry, Conrad Music Service has managed to adapt to the times and needs of the local communities it supports. Charles goes out his way, literally, to make sure Band Directors in small adjoining towns have the support and gear they need to keep their bands and programs running smoothly. Conrad Music Service epitomizes the dedication to keeping music alive in small rural towns.
