                Second Annual
Triangle Community Band Festival

Saturday, June 17, 2017, 4:00 PM
Durham Central Park
501 Foster Street
Durham, NC 27701

For a late afternoon of great band music, you'll definitely want to join us for the Second Annual Triangle Community Band Festival. Continuing an annual tradition from the mid 1990's that was lost in 2006, when the old Cary Town Band gazebo bandstand was vacated, this festival brings together all the Triangle area's wonderful community bands in a joint concert not to be missed. (Subject to change) the Festival features performances from:
        4:00 pm Raleigh Concert Band,
        4:30 pm (Chapel Hill) Village Band
        5:00 pm Cary Town Band,
        5:30 pm Holly Springs Community Band,
        6:00 pm Durham Community Concert Band
        6:30 pm Combined Bands - Stars & Stripes Forever
Each band will perform about a 30 minute short concert. (The Durham Central Park venue allows multiple bands to be set up simultaneously so there will be little time between groups.) Then the bands will all join together in a performance of John Philip Sousa's The Stars and Stripes Forever, with a sound we're sure will be heard throughout downtown Durham - a moment you will not want to miss. Food and drinks will be available for purchase from local food trucks, including Bam Pow Chow, Bull City Burger and Brewery, Dang Good Dogs, Loco Pops, and Pie Pushers! This project is supported by the Durham Arts Council’s Annual Arts Fund and the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. For more information, check out the website at www.durhamband.org. If you like band music, you will definitely want to add this event to your calendar. Bring your blankets or chairs and we'll see you there.

30th Annual Patriotic Celebration -
The Declaration

Monday, Jul 03, 2017, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center
Cary, NC
(There will be a Preshow performance with the Applause! Cary Youth Theatre at 6:30 p.m.)

This year the band presents our 30th Annual pre-4th of July Patriotic Celebration saluting our military service personnel past and present who have helped secure our freedom and liberty. Last year we focused on the Stars and Stripes, the flag of the United States. This year we’ll celebrate the document that allowed that flag to exist – the Declaration of Independence. In A Jefferson Portrait we’ll hear music and narration recalling Thomas Jefferson’s magnificent words. There’ll be tunes from the times and other music recalling the document itself and the spirit of liberty it engendered. You’ll be happily entertained and inspired when you join us for The Declaration.
