40th Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival

Saturday, Aug 27, 2016, 9:30 AM
Downtown Cary - Main stage
Cary, NC

Late August – the dog days of summer – lazy days – the perfect time for the 40th Annual Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival – a day filled with exhibits and shopping and entertainment of all varieties. And what better way to start the festival than with the Cary Town Band and the Markham Concert Band, from our Sister City, Markham, Ontario, Canada on the Main stage – in the morning before the heat of the day. (Note the relocation of this year's activities due to the ongoing reconstruction of South Academy Street.)  As you start enjoying all the activities, stop by to hear rousing marches, circus melodies, old-timey rags, and a waltz or two.  It will have you tapping your toes and dancing off to see all there is to see at this year’s Lazy Daze Festival.  We’ll see you there.

Full Moon Rising

Friday, Sep 16, 2016, 7:30 PM
Sertoma Amphitheatre, Bond Park
Cary, NC

News Flash! There’s a full moon that Friday night! And the moon rising at 7:28 p.m. will be greeted by all manner of moon-struck music at the Sertoma Amphitheatre as the band recalls all the weird things that are said to happen on a full moon – more babies born, springtides, humans transmogrify into vampires, crime increases, and lunacy prevails. Really? Well, those are the myths and there’s music to explore every one, even from a composer named Moon. Be sure to be there with us as we sit outdoors (hopefully), absorb the music – and actually watch the Full Moon Rising.

Election Day

Friday, Nov 04, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

Election Day is coming. It is only appropriate that the band celebrate this quadrennial occasion with music fit for the event – without getting too political. There’s presidential music (a polonaise) and congress music (marches); donkey music (a serenade) and elephant music (a walk or a parade); music for places our elected officials have to deal with like Afghanistan and Baghdad. Before we elect our destiny, perhaps we should hear Verdi’s La Forza Del Destino (The Force of Destiny). Please join us for all this and more – some definitely light-hearted – as we musically prepare for this year’s Election Day.
