The Winters Friends of the Library summer concert series kicks off with a free outdoor performance by the Woodland Community Band from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 10, at the Rotary Park Gazebo in front of the Community Center in Winters.
The Woodland Community Band plays a mix of patriotic songs, big band tunes from the swing era, music from Western movies, classical highlights, pop standards and more.
Under the direction of Bobby Rogers, WCB band members include a broad age range — middle school students to retired professional musicians — from Woodland, Dixon, Winters, Davis, Esparto, Yuba City and Sacramento. They rehearse and perform year-round, with up to 40 musicians on stage.
Winters Friends of the Library has presented a free outdoor concerts every Thursday in July since 1998. This year the series will continue with EGG playing a unique blend of jazz, punk and psychedelic rock on July 17; Los Tres de Winters playing norteño music on July 24; and Hot City playing New Orleans traditional jazz, hot swing and rumba on July 31.
The Friends of the Library will have refreshments for sale, and all proceeds will support the Winters Library. There also will be a selection of quality used books for sale. At this first concert, everyone will be invited to choose a free book.
