Boston Festival of Bands

The Concord Band will be one of seven concert bands from New England and Canada taking part in the 28th annual Boston Festival of Bands, a day-long celebration of the best in symphonic concert band music. The festival will be held in the Great Hall of historic Faneuil Hall in Boston on Saturday, June 11, 2016. This annual event, hosted by the Metropolitan Wind Symphony, is free to the public. This will be the Concord Band's nineteenth appearance at this prestigious festival.

The Concord Band is thrilled to announce that guest artist John Ferrillo, principal oboist of The Boston Symphony Orchestra, will be joining us for the second time this season. He previously performed with the Band at its 2015 Holiday Pops Concerts. Mr Ferrillo said that he enjoyed the experience so much that he immediately replied "Yes" when Music Director James O'Dell invited him to perform with us at the 2016 Boston Festival of Bands.

The Concord Band will perform at 2:00 PM.
