Don’t miss the last free performances of the 2013 Northfield Community Band, this Thursday, June 20, and next Thursday, June 27, in Bridge Square from 7 to 8 p.m. Grace Watkins, band and orchestra director at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School, will lead the players in celebrating summer and Independence Day in the last half of the band’s season.

Every June, the band presents a free concert series, consisting of four Thursday evening performances in the downtown park. The remaining performance schedule includes the themes: Swing into Summer! (June 20) and American Tribute (June 27).

The band is open to any high school or adult instrumentalist eager to share their talents. Contact Mary at for more information.

Sponsorship for the Northfield Community Band is provided by Carleton College and Northfield Public Schools Community Services, with in-kind support from By All Means Graphics.
