Laurel Festival – “Almost World Famous” Town Band
This past Wednesday, June 15th, was the first night in the summer series of four concerts with the Almost World Famous town band here in Wellsboro. The director of the town band, Dr. Adam Brennan, although originally from Chicago, has been living here in Wellsboro for the past 22 years. He says “I am still here loving the home town atmosphere of small town living.”
The theme for this year’s concert series is, home is where the heart is, with most songs about Wellsboro or returning home to the area. One of the songs performed at the first concert was entitled ‘Salute to Wellsboro March’ a turn of the century march written by H.C. Miller and arranged by Michael Galloway for the band.
If you are looking for an opportunity to use your musical gifts you should consider joining the town band! The members of the town band range in age from 13 to 82 with each having different levels of playing skill. And they are flexible with how many concerts you choose to play this summer. The next rehearsal is Monday, June 20 starting at 6:30 pm and ending at 9:30 pm at the old high school auditorium. For more information you can contact Dr. Adam Brennan at 607-426-0420.
