The Wayne County Historical Society Summer Community Band is looking forward to its first concert this summer.
The band will be performing under the baton of Mr Randy Claes on June 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the front yard of the Wayne County Historical Society. Spectators will need to bring their own lawn chairs. If weather does not permit the outside concert, we plan to have the concert in St. Mary’s Gymnasium (across Bowman St. from the Wayne County Historical Society).
A second concert is planned for July 30 at 7:00 p.m. in “Downtown Wooster” in front of “Everything Rubbermaid”.
We will be playing “fun” songs – marches, show tunes, patriotic songs, etc. This band is an effort to remind us of the bands which many communities had back a hundred years or so ago. The Wooster Board of Trade Band with their concerts in the old bandstand in front of the now “Everything Rubbermaid” store was an example of this type of band.
We greatly appreciate the wonderful cooperation of the College of Wooster, Prof. Nancy Ditmer, C.O.W. Directors Tom Roblee and Ned Brooks, “Main Street Wooster”, and St. Mary’s Catholic Church!! A huge thank you to a friend of the WCHS that is sponsoring the band for the fourth year!
The band is open to anybody that plays a band instrument (including percussion), young or not so young, experienced or not so experienced!! We are pleased to have about 50 members in the band this year!
