The Yolo Community Band is reviving a 65-year-old tradition with a summer concert series on the bandstand at the newly renovated Freeman Park on Main Street. Two more concerts are planned this summer, at 7 p.m. Tuesdays, Aug. 5 and 12. The park is at 1001 Main St.

The band, which is sponsored by YoloArts, also will appear at the Yolo County Fair, at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13.

“The Community Band is a band of all ages, and all musicians are welcome to join,” says director Bobby Rogers, who also is music director at Pioneer High School. “Our new name is the Yolo Community Band because we have current members from Davis, Woodland, Dixon, Winters, Esparto, Zamora and Sacramento.”

The band will continue to appeal to an audience of all ages. Its repertoire includes medleys from Broadway shows, popular television series, movie themes, patriotic songs, popular marches and light classical compositions.

The band was created in 2005 by Rogers as a way to give members of the community an opportunity to share music. The group practices from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays in the band room at Pioneer High School, 1400 Pioneer Ave. in Woodland.

To join, contact Rogers at 530-406-1148, ext. 4523, or Robert.rogers@wjusd.org.
