MOVED TO GCC: Batavia Concert Band's first concert of its 93rd season -- FREE

posted by Billie Owens in music, Event, Batavia Concert Band.

The Batavia Concert Band returns for its 93rd season of public concerts in the Stuart Steiner Theater at Genesee Community College -- venue moved due to expected rain -- at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 27.

The Batavia Concert Band’s repertoire has something for everyone: marches; Big Band and swing numbers; popular songs from musicals and movies; rock favorites; classical adaptations, and everything in-between.

The Band consists of 45-55 brass, woodwind and percussion players ranging from talented high school students to 60-year veterans. Many have professional experience, others are advanced amateur musicians, but one thing is for sure -- all love to play!

Returning for his sixth season as conductor is John Bailey, Instrumental Music teacher at Lyndonville Central School.

The Band also sponsors 50-50 raffles at every concert, bake sales, and other fundraisers. Individuals or businesses interested in supporting the Band should contact a Board member at any concert.

All concerts are fully funded by local businesses and sponsors and are open to music lovers of all ages. Light refreshments are available. Bring your family and friends, lawn chairs or a blanket, and enjoy. We’ll meet you there!

Event Date and Time: 
Wednesday, June 27, 2018 - 7:00pm
Location: 
Centennial Park, 151 State St., Batavia NY 14020
