The Repasz Band also features its own talented members as soloists.  Current members who have frequently performed solos include Albert Nacinovich (trumpet) and Gordon Taylor (alto sax).

Mrs. Aletha Swartz performed as a soprano soloist with the Band for 45 years.  She was honored by the Band upon her retirement from this position in December 2000 with a plaque, a bouquet of roses, and her photo with the Director and officers was placed on the Band's "Wall of Fame."  Mrs. Swartz also has been honored by the Band's Executive Board with the designation of Vocalist Emeritus.  Her many years of service are greatly appreciated by the Band.
