Bangor Band's summer concert series comes to an end

Written by

BANGOR - The Bangor Band had their season finale for their summer concert series at the Bangor Waterfront.

 

Dozens turned out to the Bangor Waterfront to enjoy the weather and listen to the music filling the air.

 

The band's president, Amanda Cushman, said the outdoor concerts are always a big hit and they've enjoyed great attendance this season.

 

While this series has finished, organizers are already planning for next year.

 

"We haven't got the dates in stone obviously yet, but music is in the process of being ordered, and at the end of September we'll begin rehearsing again to get ready for all the upcoming [concerts]," said Cushman.

 

Concert-goers may have recognized a familiar face during this year's summer concert series.

 

Secretary of State Matt Dunlap was an emcee for this year's outdoor performances.

 

Dunlap's daughter plays clarinet in the band, and when the group found itself without an announcer, Dunlap said he was happy to help.

 

"I've been able to do it actually every concert, there were a couple around the 4th of July I missed," said Dunlap, "but it's been a lot of fun, lot of fun to do it, they work incredibly hard and do a great job."
