The correct time the band will start playing on Memorial Day in Staunton is 10:40 or a little earlier. This corrects a now edited post giving an incorrect starting time.
The Staunton VFW will resume their annual Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 31 at 11:00 am in front of the War Memorial on Main Street in Staunton. The Band will play selections before (beginning at 10:40 or a little earlier) and during the ceremony as always so we hope to see our fans and family there!
Band members, please remember to bring your own chair and music stand. You also might want to bring clips to hold music in the wind and maybe even an umbrella. You also may wish to douse yourself with sunscreen before. The band members should be ready to tune by 10:30. Please invite friends and family. Social Media mavens in the band–please get the word out so townspeople will come to the ceremony. Thank you!!
We are pleased to announce that we will have a 2021 Season. At this time we can announce that in June we will have our usual series on Thursday nights at 7:00 pm. Although the Staunton season is not yet finalized, we expect to have four or five concerts in Staunton on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm in July.
For band members, rehearsals will begin on Wednesday, May 12 at our Mt. Olive rehearsal location. Rehearsals are always at 7:00. Please use the contact page on this website to send the director any questions.
