The Cary Town Band (Cary, NC) is reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century bands led by Sousa, Goldman, and others who popularized band concerts all over America. Presenting concerts recreating that bygone era, the band plays marches from many nations, circus music, waltzes, rags, polkas, famous overtures, and other “pops” classical music of the 1860’s to 1920’s with an occasional nod to more modern fare.

Picture this band (as above) or in classic period uniforms at events sponsored by your organization. Providing indoor and outdoor concerts for patriotic events, ceremonies, and civic events, the band is available for performances.

The Cary Town Band rehearses on Thursday evenings. If you would like to be a part of a "town band" experience, or to add such an experience to your event, or just for more information, please contact director Stuart Holoman.

30th Anniversary Concert
Spooky Music

Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

It's that time of year again when ghosts, goblins, demons, and other spooky things begin to appear in anticipation of Samhain and Halloween - in store windows, at front doors, and even at band concerts, where there's definitely spooky and haunting music to be heard. How about a marionette's funeral or a night up on the Bald Mountain or an original macabre dance ballet. In fact, to enhance the spookiness, we'll be joined by dancers from Graceful Expressions Dance Education in two different premier ballets - not to be missed! How about a world premier of a work by a young up and coming Cary composer derived from that music found on the posterior of a denizen of Hades in the Hieronymus Bosch surreal painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights". If all this happens along with spooky silly prizes, that will be spooky, but only if you join with us for our 30th Anniversary Concert, an evening of Spooky Music.
