Band concerts are back!
The Townsend Military Band will open its 2021 Thursday evening concert series on the Townsend
Common on July 8th. Weather permitting, the band will play a concert from the band stand on the Common each Thursday between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. through at least August 19th. The Townsend Military Band is managed by Betty Mae Tenney of Townsend and conducted by Thomas Souza of Chelmsford. Mr. Souza is the Brandeis University Wind Ensemble Director, the head of the Nashua, New Hampshire, Public School system Music Department, and the Band Director at the Fairgrounds Middle School in Nashua. Mr. Souza plans to feature well-known show tunes, marches, patriotic music, and children’s music in the Townsend Military Band’s Thursday evening concerts.
The concerts are funded by the Town of Townsend. Lawn parties hosted by local organizations which feature food, activities for children, and other assorted tables are held in conjunction with these concerts. Area residents of all ages are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs or blankets to the Townsend Common on Thursday evening so they may sit and enjoy the good music and the company of friends and neighbors as well as the variety of food and beverages which will be offered for sale.
