The Kirby Band will be presenting a four-week Monday night concert series in August. The concert series will begin on Monday, Aug. 5, and will continue on Aug. 12, Aug. 19, and Aug. 26.  

All the concerts will begin at 7 p.m., and will take place at the Nichols United Methodist Church in Nichols, N.Y. Refreshments will be available for purchase.

The Kirby Band, one of the oldest continuously performing bands in the United States, began performing in 1876. The Kirby Band is comprised of all volunteers. The Kirby Band provides quality musical programs with a variety of music from all genres including Broadway, jazz, movie scores, Dixieland, marches, and light classical. Donald Van Scoy is the Kirby Band’s conductor with Amanda Smith as co-conductor.

The Kirby Band is supported, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts’ Decentralization Program administered by the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
