A Salute to the Flag

Sunday, July 03, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC
(There will be a Preshow performance with 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, 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.


Numbers will be selected from: **

2 Americans We Henry Fillmore
44 Jolly Robbers Franz von Suppé
