The Bedford Big Band

The Citizens Park Summer Concert Series had its third concert last Friday, featuring the Bedford Big Band. This fantastic concert was sponsored by Artisan Music Studios. The week's stormy weather let up just in time for the Friday event, and a large number of residents from Woburn and surrounding communities used this as a great opportunity to have a relaxing evening outdoors.

Audience members were delighted by the band's classic repetoire spanning from the 30's straight up to today. Playing standards from classic big band composers, the 24-piece band from Bedford New Hampshire featured both instrumental renditions of classic vocal pieces as well as the fantastic vocal arrangements. The concert was a real hit!
