Summer Concert Series at Stage Fort Park Announced

Donate Now To Our Summer Concert

Dear Bandstand Supporter,
I am seeking donations to support the Summer Concert Series at Stage Fort Park. I’m grateful to those who have given in the past. Our 2007 Series was a big hit with audiences and sponsors alike. Unfortunately, we did not reach our 2007 goal of twelve thousand dollars. We came up short and that was money out of my pocket, not the City of Gloucester. We need more help from our audience. We should all share as much in the cost of the concerts as we share in the joy of attending them. Your financial support can insure a successful Summer Bandstand Series in 2008. We need your help more than ever. I’ve planned six free outdoor concerts at the Antonio Gentile Bandstand. The budget has been trimmed by one concert but that is not enough, we still need your support. Our Sunday evening concerts at Stage Fort Park are held in what is the most beautiful setting in New England. Your financial support will insure a full season of wonderful musical evenings at the edge of beautiful Gloucester Harbor. The cost of each concert is approximately $1,500. I need your help to continue these ‘free’ concerts.

Your financial support is crucial to the success of our summer series. Please send a check now to: Cape Ann Community Band ‘ C/o David Benjamin ‘ 32 Revere St., Gloucester, MA 01930. Thank you for your anticipated support and I look forward to seeing you at the concerts.

David L. Benjamin, Summer Music Director
