PENN YAN — The Penn Yan Area Community Band will be featured in the Yates County Summer Concert Series on Wednesday Aug. 7.

This free concert begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held on the Yates County Courthouse lawn located on Court and Main Streets in Penn Yan. Come and support this terrific group made up of ordinary citizens right from your neighborhoods.

Under the direction of accomplished  music educator and trumpeter Jeff Stempien, the talented community members will perform a variety of music that will appeal to many listeners. There is always an open invitation for anyone to dust off instruments that may have been put aside and join the band. Come and witness the camaraderie and teamwork that is always displayed as these locals perform their pieces that please the listeners around them.

Remember to bring your own lawn chair or picnic blanket, as this is an outdoor concert. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held inside the adjoining Baptist Church. The Yates County Genealogical & Historical Society will be kindly sponsoring refreshments. Come join us to see old friends and make new ones while listening to music in a lovely setting.
