Tonight, Falmouth Town Band will host a special guest, Mildred Allen, who will conduct the “Stars and Stripes Forever.” This has become an annual event for Mildred, who will be103 years old on her next birthday.
The concert will feature the trombone section in a performance of “The Trombone Rag” and the woodwind section with “Bubbling Woodwinds.” There will be plenty of real bubbles on display for both.
Other selections on the program include: “Fairest of the Fair March,” “Oliver,” “Tennessee Salute,” “Sammy Davis Jr. Highlights,” “A Friend Like Me,” “New York, New York,” “Laura,” “El Capitan March,” “Hands Across the Sea March,” “Beguine for Band,” and “Feelings.”
All Town band concerts begin at 7:30 PM every Thursday throughout the summer. They are held at the Music and Arts Pavilion, also known as the Oscar Wolf Band Shell, on Scranton Avenue on Falmouth Harbor.
Refreshments and restrooms are available. Bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.
