Invitation for players to perform with Cape Ann Community Band

Wednesday June 29, 2022

GLOUCESTER — David Benjamin, Director of the Cape Ann Community Band invites you to participate in an exciting program of concert band music featuring “An Old-Fashioned Concert In The Park”. The band will rehearse for six weeks beginning on Monday, July 11, at 7pm at the Rose Baker Senior Center, corner of Manuel F. Lewis Road and Rogers Street, Gloucester.

Players should commit to at least four of our six rehearsals, including the final rehearsal on August 15. The concert will be held on Saturday, August 20, at 7:00pm at the Antonio Gentile Bandstand, Stage Fort Park, Gloucester. The rain date is Wednesday, August 24. The program is geared toward young and more experienced players. Families are encouraged to participate as well as former and current 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 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.”
