David Benjamin, Director of the Cape Ann Community Band invites you to participate in an exciting program of concert band music written by John Williams and Leroy Anderson. The band will rehearse for six weeks beginning on Monday, July 9, at 7pm at the Gloucester American Legion Hall, 8 Washington St., Gloucester, MA.
The program will be a salute to the Boston Pops, which John Williams directed for many years. Players should commit to at least four of our six rehearsals, including the final two rehearsals on August 6 and 13. The concert will be held on Sunday, August 19, at 7:00pm at the Antonio Gentile Bandstand, Stage Fort Park, Gloucester. The rain date is Wednesday, August 22. The program is geared toward young and more experienced players. Families are encouraged to participate as well as former school band classmates. The music represents varying levels of ability; there’s something for everyone. Players will need their own instruments. Players who have a music stand should bring that as well. Percussion equipment and some stands are provided. The band is proudly sponsored by Bank Gloucester.
Director Benjamin says, “We’ve always had a lot of fun preparing our concerts. It’s a supportive mood at our rehearsals. Everyone is learning and enjoying the company of fellow musicians.”
