Batavia Community Band to lead Concert in the Park

The Batavia Community Band will star in its fourth annual Concert in the Park from 5 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, at the Peg Bond Center on the Batavia Riverwalk.

In case of inclement weather, the concert will take place in the City Council chambers at Batavia City Hall next to the Riverwalk.

The program will feature music from different genres, including marches, classics, movie medleys and patriotic songs, a news release stated.

The Batavia Community Band, under the umbrella of the city of Batavia, was organized in 2013 to play for Batavia city events and celebrations. The band has brought together many musicians who live in Batavia and surrounding towns. New members are always welcome.

All performances are free, but donations are accepted.

The director of the Batavia Community Band is John Heath, the retired director of the Batavia High School band.
