Great Britain Brass Band Concert in Skaneateles
August 15th, 2007 - 7 pm


On August 15th at 7 pm, Skaneateles will host the Great Britain Brass Band for a free concert at the Gazebo.The Great Britain Bass Band is a musical group composed of 40 talented young musicians touring the United States, and entertaining crowds as they go.  All are welcome to this outdoor concert.  Simply bring a lawn chair, or blanket or sit on one of the park benches.  This is a concert you will not want to miss. 

The Band is responsible for all of their own traveling expenses, so although the concert is FREE, donations are certainly welcome.  And if you really like what you hear, you can purchase one of their CD’s after the concert is over.

The Great Britain Brass Band has been coming to Skaneateles since 2001 under the direction of Frank Wolfe.  The Skaneateles Chamber is their host, with the following companies and organizations donating their time and services to entertain the group while in Skaneateles:  Mark’s Pizzeria , Mid-Lakes Navigation , Skaneateles Bakery, and Skaneateles Rotary.   We hope you can join us for a magical night of the big brass sound, by the lake.
