Sertoma Amphitheatre, Bond Park
Cary, NC

Have you ever noticed how many pieces of music have a color in the title – like Red Rose Rag or White Christmas or Black Horse Troop? The band’s first “silly prize” concert this season highlights such works. There may even be music for these color’s variations such as pink, crimson, purple, gray, or grey. (Yes, both spellings.) Join us on this hopefully warm but not too hot late summer evening for lots of musical Colors

See the Colors concert poster

Late August – the dog days of summer – lazy days – the perfect time for the 41st 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 on the Main stage – in the morning before the heat of the day. 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.
