Community band will play East Ferry Sunday

The Jamestown Community Band will perform at 6 p.m. Aug. 27 at East Ferry Veterans Memorial Square at the intersection of Narragansett and Conanicus avenues.

The band is an amateur concert ensemble that was founded in 1993. Along with seasonal concerts, the band’s annual performances include opening day of Cal Ripken Baseball, the Memorial Day ceremony, the Fourth of July parade and the Independence Day fireworks. Nearly 30 members, under the direction of Don Smith, play instruments ranging from piccolo to bass drum.

The free performance is the finale of the town’s summer concert series, which is organized annually by the recreation department.
