POTSDAM – The Potsdam Community Band is planning a full schedule of summer concerts and is welcoming new musicians into its ranks for the coming season.All adult musicians who play traditional wind band instruments (woodwinds, brass, percussion) are encouraged to join.
Current musicians in the band range from adult beginners to those who teach music as part of their career.
The group has several summer concerts planned, including Potsdam Summerfest (Friday, July 14) and the Madrid Dam Concert Series (Wednesday, July 19).
Rehearsals are on Mondays from 7-9 p.m. at The Crane School of Music June 5, 12, 19, and 26 and July 6 and 10. For more information and to complete a sign-up survey, visit the Potsdam Community Band website at https://potsdamband.org.
The original Potsdam Community Band was revitalized in 2010.
The band has been providing musical performances each summer (outdoors) and winter (except during the pandemic) since, and it has offered local musicians the oft-anticipated and highly-appreciated opportunity to rehearse and perform together.
