"WINSTON-SALEM (JULY 28, 2014) - The weeks leading up to the beginning of the school year are the perfect time to spend time with family and friends at one of the many local outdoor concerts.
Be sure to mark your calendars for this summer’s final Community Connections series performance by Salem Band on August 5. The series finale is a tribute to “The Old North State” and features Winston-Salem’s own Anita Cirba on trumpet and Charles Murph as guest conductor. Salem Band is bringing these two Triad musical icons together for the first time, and both are Greensboro natives.
All Salem Band concerts are performed on historic Salem Square at Old Salem Museums & Gardens. Best of all, Salem Band’s concerts are FREE for everyone!
“Salem Band was formed in 1771 and is one of the oldest bands in America,” Salem Band Music Director Eileen Young said. “Like our concerts earlier this summer, the series finale in the summer Community Connections series promises to be lively, fun music for the whole family as we salute our North Carolina heritage.”
“We encourage all members of the community to join us at Salem Square for the free concerts,” Young added. “Be sure to bring a lawn chair or blanket. We’ll have hot dogs, gelato, and other refreshments by Wild Willie’s Wiener Wagon and Caffé Prada for sale at the concerts.”
The rain date for “The Old North State” concert is August 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Salem Band’s season sponsor is Pfaff’s Auto Glass with additional support from GGS Information Services, Salem Congregation, and Jackson’s Music."
