The concert schedule will be every other Wednesday evening June 25th, July 9th, July 23rd, August 6th, and August 20th.
The concerts are held at the Weeks Bandstand at 7:30 p.m. and a rain location at the Gilford High School cafeteria.

The final summer performances will be on August 23rd in the Old Home Day Parade 10 a.m. and the evening 8 p.m.concert prior to the OHD Fireworks.
The performances will include Associate Conductor Patrick Altmire.

While at Penn State, Patrick was a 4 year dean's list student and will be attending the University of Akron in the fall on a full scholarship to earn his master's degree in music performance.
The band will eliminate the traditional intermission this year. It has been done in the past to provide a break for some of the high demand musicians. With careful programming this problem will be minimized. New members are always welcome. This is the best time of year for new members to join the group, to take full advantage of all the rehearsals to become acquainted with the program and the members. All ages are welcome from school age to adult musicians. All percussion, woodwind and brass musicians are welcome.
