Citizens Band concert Friday night

JOHNSTOWN — The second concert of this year’s Johnstown Citizens Band will be held on Friday in the bandshell at Sir William Johnson Park on Main Street.

Rehearsal will be from 6:30 to 7 p.m., and the concert at 7. Conducting the band for the concert will be retired Mayfield band director Noel Wing.

This is the band’s 111th consecutive year of providing music in the summer. In case of inclement weather, this concert will be moved to the St. John’s Episcopal Church next door to the band shell.

The concert is free, and the public is asked to bring lawn chairs. The Johnstown Citizens Band is sponsored in part by the city of Johnstown and by donations from area merchants.

Anyone who wishes to make a donation to the band can send it to the Johnstown Citizens Band in care of Doug Dougherty, 1 Abel Drive, Johnstown, NY 12095.
