The Winters Friends of the Library summer concert series continues with a free outdoor performance by the Woodland Community Band at 7 p.m. Thursday. The concert is at the Rotary Park Gazebo on Main Street at Railroad Avenue, in front of the Community Center.
The all-ages band is under the direction of Bobby Rogers, music director at Pioneer High School. He started the group in 2005 to give members of the community an opportunity to share music; it now has members from Davis, Woodland, Dixon, Winters, Esparto, Yuba City and Sacramento.
The band practices from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays at Pioneer High School, and is sponsored by the Woodland Music Boosters.
In the Winters concert, the band will play a variety of patriotic music as well as a tribute to Glenn Miller and other pieces such as “Amparito Roca” by Jaime Texidor, “The Witch and the Saint” by Steven Reineke, “Waltz No. 2″ by Dmitri Shostakovich and more.
“Invite your friends and neighbors, bring a blanket or lawn chairs or sit on the grass, sip a cool drink, and enjoy some fine live music on a summer evening,” organizers said in a news release.
The Friends of the Library will have snacks, ice cream and cold drinks for sale, and all proceeds will support the Winters Library.
A selection of quality used books will be for sale.
