Concerts in the Park: Free Summer Series 2011 starts June 26 5 PM

Sundays at 5 PM – Free

Huntington Beach Central Park behind the library

The Huntington Beach Concert Band has been performing for Southern California audiences for thirty-eight years. Founded by John Mason in 1973, this non profit volunteer community concert band today is conducted by Thomas Ridley and provides concerts to the greater Orange County area throughout the year.  The Band’s purpose is to provide a creative opportunity for all musicians age 18 or older to share musical talents and bring enjoyment to others through public performance.  We are formally organized as a California Non-Profit Corporation.

The band plays 12-15 concerts a year throughout Orange County.  This includes two concerts as part of the annual Sunday Summer Concert Series  The band is proud to have organized and sponsored this series for many years, increasing the number of concerts  from a low of four to eleven for the past four years.  Another highlight is playing a concert on the grass at Verizon Amphitheater and then joining the Pacific Symphony Orchestra onstage for the 1812 Overture.
