For over 50 years, The Northport Community Band has been delighting Northport residents and music lovers from all over Long Island. For five Thursday nights in July, the band performs at the Robert W. Krueger Bandstand in Northport Village Park, overlooking scenic Northport Harbor. Listeners can sit on blankets or lawn chairs in front of the bandstand, or even enjoy the music from their boats. The band’s musicians are volunteers from all walks of life and include local students, teachers and professional musicians.
Celebrating this local talent, the band’s season theme – “Hometown Harmony” – will feature a blend of marches, overtures, classics and popular favorites. Weekly features will include guest conductors, vocalists and instrumental soloists, as well as the Northport Chorale and pre-concert performances by the Northport Community Jazz Orchestra. Listeners always look forward to the final concert, which includes Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture,” complete with dueling cannons.
Tonight’s theme will be “Our Favorite Things” with guest conductor David Gaines from Massapequa Schools and NYSSMA President.
