2016 EDM4USTROOPS
5th Annual Golf Tournament
Honoring Wounded Warriors, Disabled Veterans and Military Families
Opening Ceremony

Monday, Jun 06, 2016, 8:00 AM, 9:30 a.m. shotgun start
Prestonwood Country Club
Cary, NC

Since the first tournament in May, 2012, the EDM4USTroops Golf Tournament has become a highly celebrated event bringing together business, military, local government and citizen communities to recognize and honor special members of the NC military who sacrificed and are now re-integrating to civilian status.
Played on two golf courses at the prestigious Prestonwood Country Club in Cary NC – the tournament has earned recognition as the largest military golf event on the East Coast. This year we celebrate the 5th Annual event, as well as, feature WWII veterans to celebrate “D” Day, which is June 6. We anticipate another very celebrated event – and could possibly grow to the 3rd golf course at Prestonwood Country Club. Music for the opening ceremonies will be provided by the Cary Town Band. For more information, contact Program Director Sandra Moonert

                The Inaugural
Triangle Community Band Festival

Saturday, June 18, 2016, 4:00 PM
Durham Central Park
501 Foster Street
Durham, NC 27701

For a late afternoon of great band music, you'll definitely want to join us for The Inaugural Triangle Community Band Festival. Reviving an annual tradition from the mid 1990's that was lost in 2006, when the old Cary Town Band gazebo bandstand was vacated, this festival brings together all the Triangle area's wonderful community bands in a joint concert not to be missed. The Festival features performances from:
        Cary Town Band,
        Durham Community Concert Band,
        Holly Springs Community Band,
        Raleigh Concert Band,
        (Chapel Hill) Village Band
Each band will perform about a 30 minute short concert. (The Durham Central Park venue allows multiple bands to be set up simultaneously so there will be little time between groups.) Then the bands will all join together in a performance of John Philip Sousa's The Stars and Stripes Forever, with a sound we're sure will be heard throughout downtown Durham - a moment you will not want to miss. Food and drinks will be available for purchase from local food trucks, including Bam Pow Chow, Bull City Burger and Brewery, Dang Good Dogs, Loco Pops, and Pie Pushers! This project is supported by the Durham Arts Council’s Annual Arts Fund and the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. For more information, check out the website at www.durhamband.org. If you like band music, you will definitely want to add this event to your calendar. Bring your blankets or chairs and we'll see you there.

(There will be a Preshow performance with the Applause! Cary Youth Theatre at 6:30 p.m.)

Do you ever just stand and look in awe at our national flag – the Stars and Stripes - Old Glory? It’s got quite a history, you know. This year, for our 29th Annual Patriotic Celebration, we’ll be musically saluting that flag, it’s history, and many musical works it has inspired. Joining with the Concert Singers of Cary, we feature John Raymond Howell’s offering of A Salute to the Flag, plus marches, songs, and other works recalling Old Glory. And, of course, there’s the annual pre-4th of July salute to our military service personnel past and present who have helped secure our freedom and liberty. You’ll be educated and happily entertained when you join us for A Salute to the Flag.

40th Annual Lazy Daze Arts and Crafts Festival

Saturday, Aug 27, 2016, 9:30 AM
Downtown Cary - stage TBD
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 at a location in downtown Cary to be determined – 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, Oct 28, 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.
