Independence Day concert @ GCC

Rain or Shine!
Garrett College Auditorium in case of rain
FREE (donations invited)

A true celebration of patriotism the Garrett County way! Join us for the second annual concert featuring BOTH the Garrett Community Concert Band and the Garrett Choral Society.
Round out the evening with the perfect spot to view the community fireworks display immediately following the concert.
Garrett Community Concert Band is relatively new, formed in May of 2000, entirely as a volunteer group, under the guidance of a very accomplished local musician. Starting with its Fourth of July premier performance in 2000, it has presented three concerts a year. Members include people from all walks, including businessmen, teachers, homemakers, retirees and high school and college students. It is strictly a volunteer organization.

The Garrett Choral Society is a community chorus open to all singers--non-auditioned. The society's concert season includes a holiday concert in December, a Spring Concert, and other special presentations. The organization has quite an extensive list of repertoire that includes many major works. The director rarely needs to hire soloists - they come right from the choir! The society's artistic director is Julie S. Turrentine; the founding director is Nancy K. Learey; the accompanist is Lynn Grimm.
