The Batavia Concert Band’s 90th season of music-making will run this year with free public concerts in Batavia’s Centennial Park on July 16, 23 and 30.
The Batavia Concert Band’s repertoire is wide-ranging in origin, period and style: marches, Big Band and swing numbers; popular songs from musicals and movies; rock favorites arranged for band; classical adaptations; 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.
This year’s conductor will be Mr. John Bailey, instrumental music director at Lyndonville Central School.
Downbeat for regular season concerts is 7 p.m. Wednesday evenings in Centennial Park, Batavia. (* In the event of rain, concerts will move to Genesee Community College. Notices will be posted at the NW corner of Centennial Park and announced on WBTA radio AM1490, posted on <http://www.thebatavian.com>, and the Batavia Daily News Web site, <http://www.thedailynewsonline.com>.
All concerts are free to the public of all ages. Light refreshments are available. Bring the family, some friends, lawn chairs or a blanket -- and enjoy!
