Rutland City Band up next in Friday night concert series

 

One of the area’s oldest municipal bands will take the Whitehall stage this Friday.

The Rutland City Band will perform at 7 p.m. on Aug. 17 on the bandstand at the Riverside Veterans Memorial Park on Main Street.

In the tradition of American town bands, the group plays a variety of music for all generations.

Started in 1876, the Rutland City Band is one of the oldest municipally supported bands in the country.

Following their performance there are only two concerts remaining in this summer’s concert series.

The Talegatorz will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Aug. 24 and Airtight will bring the concert series to a close at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 31.

Admission to each concert is free and patrons are encouraged to bring their own chair or blankets to sit upon.
The Music in the Park concert series is made possible by donations and contributions from local businesses and organizations, including the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
