Perinton Concert Band

5 Nov

Have you heard the Perinton Concert Band yet?  Whether you’ve never heard them before, or you’re an avid fan, you don’t want to miss their “Salute to Veterans” this week!

This diverse group has over 50 members.  It is multi-generational and members have a wide variety of backgrounds; they say they are “united by the love of music and the enjoyment of performing good concert band music” (perintonconcertband.org).  The Perinton Concert Band is conducted by Charles Van Buren, who has a long-time history with music in the Rochester area.  He is the former band director at Penfield High School & adjust professor at Nazareth college, and has performed with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra.

Friday the band will be paying tribute to our veterans with a patriotic concert.  Join them in saluting those who have served in our armed forces at the Minerva DeLand Auditorium at 8 pm.  Tickets are available at the door; a suggested donation of $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for students, and $20 for an entire family. 

For future performances, please visit their website for a complete concert schedule.
