Guilderland Town Band plays on

GUILDERLAND — The Guilderland Town Band is performing for its 52nd season, with its first concert scheduled for Thursday, June 23, at 7:30 p.m. at the Guilderland Performing Arts Center in Tawasentha Park.

“The program will feature a variety of music, with a little something for everyone,” according to a notice from the band. “Highlights will include: ‘Sondheim!’ in memory of the great Stephen Sondheim, ‘A Morning Hike’ written by Guilderland Town Band member Tyler Mazone, marches, and more.”

Young musicians will be featured throughout the season as soloists, vocalists, conductors, and composers.

Future concerts are scheduled for July 14 and Aug. 4.  All concerts are free and open to the public.

The band was founded in 1969 and is currently in its 52nd season, after a hiatus in 2020 due to COVID-19.  The band is made up of local professional and amateur musicians who come together each summer to provide quality, free, symphonic band music for the local community.

The band has been under the musical direction of Kathleen Richards-Ehlinger since 2002. Richards-Ehlinger is a Guilderland native, with an extensive conducting and education career.
