Music to Spring Ahead!
Free Band Concert
Springfield, MA – The public is invited to a free band concert at 2:00 pm on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at Classical High Condominiums, 235 State Street, Springfield. The concert, entitled “Music to Spring Ahead,” will herald the first day of Daylight Savings Time with a music program guaranteed to turn dreary winter doldrums to thoughts of sunny days to come. The concert will be performed by members of the Sci-Tech Band, the recognized young musicians from Springfield’s High School of Science and Technology, and Music Director Gary Bernice will lead his group through an energizing, upbeat program. Bernice’s accomplishments are well known, as he has led the band program at Sci-Tech to award-winning performances and has amassed an impressive number of participants and followers. This concert promises to put a smile on everyone’s face.
The concert is sponsored by Historic Classical, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the legacy of the former Classical High School. The mission of Historic Classical is to keep the history and memories of the former high school alive by inviting the public to events at 235 State Street, the site of the old school where Classical Condominiums now exists, but still retains many of the architectural features of the historic building. Historic Classical hosts programs featuring Classical alums, musical programs, events with Victorian themes, and maintains the Historic Classical Museum on site that boasts a large collection of memorabilia from the former high school.
The audience is encouraged to arrive early for the free concert. Free pizza and other refreshments will be available. Spring ahead with the music! The venue is wheelchair accessible, and ample free parking is available in the adjacent Quadrangle Library/Museums parking lot to the right of Classical Condominiums.
