Sponsored in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the band performed some of its most beautiful pieces like a medley from the “Sound of Music” as well as numerous rousing polkas to get everyone up and dancing. With a generous grant from the MA Cultural Council, the band was able to purchase new music for this event! 

Concert last approximately an hour and a half.  Though it “Never Rains” on Summer Friday Nights in Chatham, concerts may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
