Lee County Community Band begins 136th season Nov. 14

By Staff | Sep 6, 2021

Tap your toes, snap your fingers and put on a smile – the legendary Lee County Community Band is back in town!

After a pause last season due to the COVID-19 virus, the band will begin its 136th season with a lively, fun-filled, free concert on Sunday, Nov. 14, at 3 p.m. at Cape Coral High School.

In keeping with tradition for the season’s first concert, Director Richard Bradstreet has selected a program featuring spirited and patriotic American music by American composers and a salute to U.S. military veterans.

Programs typically include a mix of energetic marches, Broadway hits, old favorites, patriotic songs, and a sing-along with emcee and vocalist Norman Jones.

The 50-member adult band will perform six concerts this season, each one on the second Sunday of the month. Additional concert dates are Dec. 12, Jan. 9, Feb. 13, March 13, and April 10.

All concerts will be at Cape High, 2300 Santa Barbara Boulevard, one block north of Veterans Parkway, beginning at 3 p.m.

The concerts are free of charge (donations are welcome), and open to the public.

Band members are musicians from all walks of life – career musicians, amateurs, and folks renewing skills from years past – who reside in Lee, Collier, and Charlotte Counties. The organization welcomes new members every year. Persons interested in joining may phone John Fenn at 239-454-6430.

An institution in Southwest Florida, the band enjoys a large, loyal, and enthusiastic audience at every concert. Plan to arrive early for best choice of seating.
