Rockport American Legion Band Summer Concert Series

Start Date: Jul 27 2008
Location: Back Beach Bandstand



The Rockport Legion Band, conducted by Steve Thomas, will present the third concert in its Diamond Anniversary Summer Series on Sunday, July 27, starting at 7:00 P.M. As usual, the concert will be held at the Rockport Bandstand on Back Beach. The program will include marches by Sousa, Alford, Jewell, and Goldman, as well as popular songs by Gershwin, The Beatles, and The Four Seasons. There may also be some surprises added to the program. Bring a blanket or some chairs and join us for a family evening of music; refreshments will be available.

The Diamond Anniversary Summer Concert Series dates are set, but due to the way holidays occur this year, we will be presenting only SEVEN programs this summer, rather than eight. Traditionally, we do not give concerts on July Fourth or Labor Day weekends. However, the Clown Band (for the Firemen’s Parade) and the bandstand group (for The Bonfire) will still perform on July Fourth.

The first concert will be on Sunday, July 13 at 7:00 P.M. and the last will be August 24, also at 7:00. PLEASE NOTE that the start time is thirty minutes earlier than in years past. Mark your calendars, and please let us know if you will be away during any weeks in July and August.
