2016 Brownstown Patriotic Program

Published by under concerts

Sunday’s concert will be on the courthouse square in Brownstown, on U.S. 50 between Walnut and Cross streets.

It’s a good idea to bring some water, sunscreen and bug spray. If the stage isn’t ready by Sunday — which is 99 percent likely to be the case — recall that our shade tree was removed. So you might want to wear shades or a hat. As long as they don’t obstruct your view of Steve.

Also, the courthouse should be unlocked, and there are bathrooms inside.

The schedule:

If weather looks questionable: An alert will be emailed by 11:30 a.m.
In seats: 1:30 p.m.
Concert begins: 2 p.m.
Please help pack up afterward.
Anyone who is able, please help unload at CMS afterward!

No load time: Ron is single-handedly transporting our equipment to the square.

Concert attire:

-Tan summer band shirt
-Black pants/skirts and shoes

And ICYMI, Brian Blair had an article on us in The Republic this week.
“But the ensemble of amateurs and professionals presenting tunes ranging from marches to modern, from big band to Broadway, may be better defined beyond concert-band status — even one dating back to a Bartholomew County Commissioners’ charter from 1847.

“We’re like family, said bassoonist Louise Hillery, who has played with the group since it reorganized as a year-round act in 1983.”
