Special Event: Music By The Bay Summer Concert Series–Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble

June 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

 

Tonight’s performers will be the Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble.

​The Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble is an all-volunteer, non-profit concert band, which performs approximately six concerts per year for communities in the Hampton Roads area. As a non-profit, the Ensemble tries to give more than just music to its community.  With a variety of performers, the Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble has touched all ages on the Virginia Peninsula, while permitting the younger members to learn from the extensive experience of the older members. The Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble is a member of the Association of Concert Bands.

The Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble will emphasize genuinely American Music. This will include wind band music that portrays the various styles that have become synonymous with our country – Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Popular Idiom (Country, Classic Rock & Roll etc), Cultural Styles, Musicals, Folk Songs, Dance Music from an Older Era, and, of course, Our Patriotic Heritage

There is a sound, a style that has developed that is distinctly American. It has grown out of the vast mixtures of cultures that embody our Nation. It has a vivaciousness and character unlike any other music in history. It conveys the story, the tragedy, and the joy of a young and searching country. American music cannot be categorized. It cannot be pinned down and labeled. It is the sum of all who were here and all who have come to this phenomenal Land.

Bring your own picnic, chairs, and blankets to enjoy summer sunsets by the Chesapeake Bay along with the sweet sounds of some of the region’s most talented performers.

Large groups welcome. Drop-off at Continental Park, bus parking at Outlook Beach parking lot. Free parking onsite.
