The original Providence Brigade Band was chartered in 1847. They performed in concerts and parades, dedicated monuments to fallen heroes and in general fostered civic pride. The band continues that tradition today. Members dress in military uniforms of the period and play original music of the time. Songs of the American Civil War are highlighted. Facts, anecdotes, and the legends of the songs and composers are included to enhance the unique qualities of this musical genre and time period. Bring chairs or a blanket and a picnic dinner for this concert on the lawn. A great evening for the whole family! Please register by calling 294-3306 in case we have to be inside (no food) due to rain.
