The Cookeville Community Band will begin its 13th season with a Memorial Day Concert on Monday, May 26.

Robert Jager will lead the band as conductor this season. Having previously been a guest conductor of the band, Jager's first concert as permanent conductor was the Christmas and Holiday Concert.

Concert dates for the 2014 summer series are: May 26, June 9, June 23, July 7, July 21 and August 4. Read more about the concerts on the band's event pages at cookevillecommunityband.org/events.

Concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public. They take place at the Dogwood Park Performance Pavilion, located behind the Putnam County Public Library and the Cookeville Performing Arts Center (CPAC).

Again this year, Bob Luna will be the host for the summer concert series. Luna's baritone voice has welcomed audiences and introduced them to a world of wonderful music since the band was founded in 2002.

Announcements will be made prior to a canceled concert on this web site and the Band's social media outlets (currently, Facebook and Twitter).
