The Batavia Concert Band will perform at *7 p.m. in Centennial Park in the city. The conductor is Wayne Burlison.
Its repertoire is wide-ranging in origin, period and style: marches, Big Band and swing numbers, popular songs from musicals and movies, classical adaptations, rock favorites arranged for band, fun songs for kids of all ages … and everything in between.
The band consists of about 50 brass, woodwind and percussion players ranging from talented local high school students to 60-year veterans. Many have professional experience; the rest are advanced amateur musicians. All love to play.
Founded in the early 1920s, the Batavia Concert Band has brought musical pleasure to the region every year except during WWII. The band currently enjoys financial support from GO-ART!, concert sponsors, program advertisers, and individual patrons.
All concerts are free to the public of all ages. Light refreshments are usually available. Bring the family, some friends, lawn chairs or a blanket … and enjoy!
(*In the event of rain, concerts will move to Genesee Community College's Stuart Steiner Theatre. Notices will be posted at the NW corner of Centennial Park and announced on WBTA radio AM1490, and http://thebatavian.com)
