The Northport Community Band is thrilled to announce our return to LIVE performances each Thursday evening in July in Northport Village Park!
Beginning July 1 at 8:30 pm, the Robert W. Krueger Bandstand will once again ring with the sounds of your musical friends and neighbors in a summertime tradition since 1959. As they carefully emerge from a long quarantine, they will be featuring members of the Band in smaller groups that don’t always get the spotlight, culminating with the full band in our final weeks: July 1 – Mr. Jack Daniel’s Original Silver Cornet Band featuring the French Horn Ensemble; July 8 – The NCB Low Brass Collective plus the Jazz Orchestra Quintet; July 15 – The Northport Community Jazz Orchestra Big Band; July 22 – Return of the FULL Northport Community Concert Band, guest conductor Tom Gellert and surprises; July 29 – Season Finale with the full band, Armed Forces Salute with American Legion Post #694 and the 1812 Overture with cannons.
The band has a contingency rain site! If the weather threatens, the evening’s performance will move to Northport High School. Announcements will be made beginning at 3:00 pm on the Band’s website, www.ncb59.org and our Facebook page; and loyal audience members can sign up for instant updates by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or texting @e82cbb to 81010.
Every concert is also live streamed and archived at facebook.com/NCB1959, where all of last year’s virtual concerts can still be found. Rain or shine, there’s great LIVE music ahead. Bring your folding chairs, beach blankets and a picnic dinner and celebrate the band’s 63rd musical summer.
P. S. Don’t forget to “bring a can to the concert!” Long Island Cares will once again accept non-perishable food donations every week, and each item is worth a raffle ticket for valuable prizes – including guest conducting “The Stars and Stripes Forever” at the final concert!
Current and retired Northport Staff who are NCB members: Don Sherman, Director; Remy D’Esposito, Chris Zacher; joe Hinton; Ellen McCarthy; and lots of alumni!
