HB Concert Band Summer Series Concerts 2020

HB Concert Band 2020 Series

To Friends and Supporters of the Huntington Beach Concert Band

For almost 50 years, the Huntington Beach Concert Band has had the privilege of entertaining our community by sponsoring the Summer Series Concerts in the Park. Your attendance and support have made the concerts possible.

Unfortunately, our music has been silenced by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We regret to announce that the Summer Series Concerts 2020 are cancelled.

While this is a keen disappointment for all of us, we are considering it to be only a pause in our music making. We plan to resume rehearsals when our rehearsal room is available and we are again permitted to assemble. We are already considering musical selections for our next concerts and featured groups for the Summer Series Concerts 2021.

You’re our “family,” and we’ll keep you informed about resumption of concerts and events.

In the meantime, we’d enjoy hearing from you on our website – click on About, then Contact Us. If you wish to support the band financially (our expenses for storage, insurance, etc. continue), go to the Donate button on the website.

Here’s a memory of last summer in the park. Feel free to put it on the refrigerator as you hum “Stars and Stripes Forever!”
