CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY WITH THE COOKEVILLE COMMUNITY BAND IN CONCERT ON JULY 3
Prepare yourselves for a Star-Spangled Extravaganza as the Cookeville Community Band presents their concert on Friday, July 3, at 8 p.m. in the Dogwood Park Performance Pavilion.
The band will present music of America – Broadway showstoppers from George Cohan and Irving Berlin to the moving tribute "Hymn to the Fallen" from John Williams' "Saving Private Ryan." You will hear stirring marches, patriotic medleys, and even cannons, if you use your imagination, on the Finale section of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.
Tap your toes and clap your hands to the music of the Community Band as they play our national march, "The Stars and Stripes Forever," by John Philip Sousa!
All performances in the Cookeville Community Band Summer Concert Series are held in the Dogwood Park Performance Pavilion. The concerts are free of charge and open to the public. Audience members are encouraged to bring a chair and picnic basket and enjoy an evening in the park.
The Cookeville Community Band is comprised of musicians from the entire Upper Cumberland area. The members come from every walk of life and every age, from high school students to senior adults—people who love playing their instruments and taking part in the great American concert band tradition.
