Men’s Group to Sponsor Big Band Concert to Help Veterans

| October 19, 2010 | 0 Comments

On Sunday, November 7 at 7:00p.m., the back mountain Men’s Ecumenical Group will host a concert by The Allentown Band at the Dallas Middle school auditorium.  All proceeds from the concert will benefit The first Lieutenant Michael J. Cleary Memorial Fund.

A prominent feature of nineteenth-century musical Americana is the concert band, and the Allentown Band has, for almost two hundred years, kept that tradition alive. Drawn from within a fifty-mile radius of the Lehigh Valley, the band’s musicians, as different as their backgrounds may be, share one common goal: to create and preserve concert band music at a level of excellence rarely heard from a community band.

Tickets are on sale for $10 at The UPS Store, Dallas Shopping Center; Dreier Auto, state Route 309 in Shavertown; Gay’s True Value Hardware Store, Tunkhannock; and Shavertown United Methodist Church, Pioneer Avenue in Shavertown. Tickets will also be sold at the door and can be purchased online here.
