The Cumberland County Community Band will present a patriotic concert on Monday, July 3, 7:30 p.m. at the Cumberland County Playhouse. Under the direction of Murray Kidwell, the band will perform patriotic tunes, marches, and American folk songs. Also participating will be assistant conductor Rick Weyhrich.

The primary purpose of the CCC Band is to provide high quality band music for the citizens of this area, as well as to give adult musicians an opportunity to perform. In addition, the band contributes to the community through concerts at elementary schools, performing at the recent Memorial Day ceremonies, and accepting an invitation to play at the dedication of the new high school in July. Other services the band has provided have been fundraisers for the support group of the 278th regiment, the relief fund for New Orleans musicians, and the Art Guild of Fairfield Glade.

The band welcomes new musicians. All concerts are free and open to the public. For further information, call Rick or Luella Dennis, 707-5320.
