The Chelmsford Community Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble continue their 2015-16 season with their “Spotlight Showcase” Concert, to be presented on Sunday May 15th. The concert is being performed at the Chelmsford Elks Hall, 300 Chelmsford Street, Chelmsford, at 2:00 PM.
This concert will feature solo and small ensemble performances, hand-picked by individual members of the CCB. This is the first time the band has performed such a concert, showcasing the talents of performers, both long term members and fairly new arrivals.
The concert will also feature a multi-item raffle of items donated by members and local merchants, plus a bake sale. Proceeds from these will help to fund the band’s many upcoming projects and continuing expenses. Suggested general donations of $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for students and senior citizens can be made at the door.
The band is a non-profit organization; this means that it relies on donations and community arts grants to buy music, pay for its rehearsal and performance space, pay its directors, and purchase equipment. To contribute to the fundraiser, look for the CCB on Twitter (@ChelmsfordBand), on Facebook, or at chelmsfordband.org, where you can use a PayPal link to make a donation.
