It’s sometimes a very difficult decision but because multiple radar tracks are showing an increasing likelihood of thunderstorms, couple with the high heat and humidity, it seems beat to cancel this evening’s concert. Next week, Christmas in August.
As of 6 pm, it looks like one of those difficult to call situations. At the moment we are still on for tonight but please watch here as the situation could change quickly.
Every few years, the band performs a Christmas in July Concert to help beat the heat (and to get the chance to play some great music from the winter season). Tonight we’ll present a wide array of carols, popular songs, themes from beloved Christmas animation features and even some Chanukah favorites. We’ll even dress the stage, instruments and musicians in festive attire. You won’t want to miss it!!
7:30 PM, Bandstand behind Staunton Public Library In the event of rain we will always announce cancellations on our homepage: http://mycommunityband.org
