Summerfest 4th of July

Tuesday, Jul 04, 2017, 5:45 PM
Koka Booth Amphitheatre, Regency Park
Cary, NC

The Cary Town Band, the North Carolina Symphony, and fireworks - what could make the 4th of July more perfect. Come join Summerfest 2017 for the annual 4th of July Celebration. The big event starts around 5:45 PM when the Cary Town Band brings you an old fashion play-in-the-park afternoon concert just like your great grandparents enjoyed a hundred years ago when they celebrated the 4th of July. Patriotic music, popular music, some radio moments, and more, while stretched out on a blanket on the grass. Come enjoy the fun with the band, the symphony, and culminating with the best fireworks display in the Triangle area. Don't miss it.

Kiwanis Shelter, Bond Park
Cary, NC

  2017 CTB "Parade Unit"

Members of the band will lead this year's "Parade in the Park", a parade where kids are encouraged to decorate their bike, trike, stroller, wagon or stroller to show their American Pride. The parade moves from the entrance to the Kiwanis Shelter parking lot to the lake side across from the Boat House in Bond Park, where the decorated vehicles are judged. The Band's performance is extremely informal, not so much marching as meandering along the route playing as they go. All selections are played "by ear". There is no written music and the arrangements are entirely impromptu. This recalls the picture of a parade led by a fife and drum from years ago.

Parade performance order (repeated numeous times):

  Caisson Song John Philip Sousa
  Yankee Doodle Traditional
  When the Saints Go Marching In Traditional
  You're a Grand Old Flag George M. Cohan

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. To enhance this celebration and your knowledge about the foundations of our republic, you will have the opportunity to receive your very own personal copy of the Declaration of Independence and the complete US Constitution. You’ll be happily entertained and inspired when you join us for The Declaration.

                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,
        4:25 pm (Chapel Hill) Village Band
        4:50 pm Cary Town Band,
        5:25 pm Holly Springs Community Band,
        5:50 pm Durham Community Concert Band
        6:15 pm Combined Bands - Stars & Stripes Forever
Each band will perform about a 25 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, Pie PPushers, and Salt City Ciderworks! For after the concerts, there are also many restaurants right in the same area. 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.

In recent years we've held a very popular carol sing-along, so we'll be doing it again. (Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite carols.) There'll be music to celebrate your favorite holiday festivities - Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, maybe New Years, and of course, a Sleigh Ride. We will again feature a few smaller ensembles of band members bringing you holiday favorites. Come enjoy all your favorite holiday melodies at Winterfest ‘16.

Election Day

Friday, Nov 04, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

Election Day is coming. It is only appropriate that the band celebrate this quadrennial occasion with music fit for the event – without getting too political. There’s presidential music (a polonaise) and congress music (marches); donkey music (a serenade) and elephant music (a walk or a parade); music for places our elected officials have to deal with like Afghanistan and Baghdad. Before we elect our destiny, perhaps we should hear Verdi’s La Forza Del Destino (The Force of Destiny). Please join us for all this and more – some definitely light-hearted – as we musically prepare for this year’s Election Day.


See the Election Day concert poster

The Concert Silly Prizes for this concert - For attendees who brought their tickets: * First – a bag to put everything in.
* For Solid Men to the Front – 4 solid (plastic) military action figures.
* For Democrats and the Donkey Serenade – A donkey nose mask.
* For Republicans and the Baby Elephant Walk – a solar-powered Baby Elephant Drummer.
* For Our Congress – According to the Auburn Bird Banding Project (among others), a gathering of crows is called a “congress of crows” – so here’s 1 motion-sensing representative crow.
* For Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz – here’s a little Alka-Seltzer to easy your pain, for immediately after the election next Tuesday.
* For Jolly Robbers and Die Banditen – For our favorite Executive Branch agency – the IRS – here’s Subtraction Flash Cards to demonstrate the one thing they do so well. You start with Payday (candy bar). Do Subtraction. And end up with Zero (candy bar).
* And to hide away a little something before the subtraction is all done, a little Sock Purse.
* For the whole Election Day concert, just remember that after the election is over, the sun will still rise and will still set over our beautiful country. To celebrate that, here’s a Sun Rise and Sunsets 2017 12-Month Calendar.
* For the President and Presidential Polonaise – a package of President Brie.
Congratulations to the drawing winner: Jenni Jondi of Cary, NC.

Full Moon Rising

Friday, Sep 16, 2016, 7:30 PM
Sertoma Amphitheatre, Bond Park
Cary, NC

News Flash! There’s a full moon that Friday night! And the moon rising at 7:28 p.m. will be greeted by all manner of moon-struck music at the Sertoma Amphitheatre as the band recalls all the weird things that are said to happen on a full moon – more babies born, springtides, humans transmogrify into vampires, crime increases, and lunacy prevails. Really? Well, those are the myths and there’s music to explore every one, even from a composer named Moon. Be sure to be there with us as we sit outdoors (hopefully), absorb the music – and actually watch the Full Moon Rising.

See the Full Moon Rising concert poster

The Concert Silly Prizes for this concert - For attendees who brought their tickets: * First – a bag to put everything in.
* For “Moonlight Serenade”, a lilac-scented candle to set that romantic mood.
* For “Am Abend” (In Evening), a little flash light to light your path, even when there is a full moon. Perhaps you can even use it this evening as you wend you way back up the path to the parking lot.
* For “Liebespärchen”, lovers or loving pair, here’s a pair of love birds on a mirror.
* For “Carolina Moon”, a quintessential North Carolina treat, not one but two Moon Pies – a treat since 1917, 11 years before the song was even written.
* For “Vampires in the Attic”, the ultimate protection from vampires – three cloves of garlic. Yes, you may wear them around your neck.
* For “Crazy Bone Rag”, here’s a crazy looking bone with a rag. It’s your own Crazy Bone Rag.
* For “In a Moonlit Garden”, a packet of moonflower seeds for a moonflower vine – they bloom at night. And – a set of basic instructions. You’ll want to save these to plant next spring in your own moonlit garden.
* For “Full Moon” – I know you’ve heard the expression from old fables or proverbs that said the moon is really made of cream cheese or green cheese. Well, to go along with that tale, at least half way, here’s a half moon of cheese.
Congratulations to the drawing winner: Barbara Scruggs of Cary, NC.

40th Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival

Downtown Cary - Publix Main stage
Cary, NC

Late August – the dog days of summer – lazy days – the perfect time for the 40th Annual Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival – a day filled with exhibits and shopping and entertainment of all varieties. And what better way to start the festival than with the Cary Town Band and the Markham Concert Band, from our Sister City, Markham, Ontario, Canada on the Publix Main stage – in the morning before the heat of the day. (Note the relocation of this year's activities due to the ongoing reconstruction of South Academy Street.)  As you start enjoying all the activities, stop by to hear rousing marches, circus melodies, old-timey rags, and a waltz or two.  It will have you tapping your toes and dancing off to see all there is to see at this year’s Lazy Daze Festival.  We’ll see you there.
