BANDS OF THE VILLAGES 

Patriotic Spectacular Concert

Sunday 3 July, 3pm or 7 pm

Savannah Center 1545 Buena Vista Blvd 


Join the Bands of the Villages in their annual celebration of America!

Volunteer musicians from three of the Villages’ largest bands combine

their talents to perform a variety of patriotic music. The music is guaranteed

to reflect the heartbeat of our nation with selections from World War II,

Dixieland favorites, Sousa marches, and even a special presentation

of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. 


And yes, of course, we’ll pay tribute to our Armed Forces. For those who

have served in the military, please feel welcome to wear Service caps. 


What a great way to get ready to celebrate the fourth of July? Put on

your red, white, and blue; and come out for a “shot” of good old-fashioned

patriotism. Tickets are on sale at the Villages Box Offices for $15.00.

In addition to enjoying the Patriotic Spectacular music extravaganza, 

it’s noteworthy that a large portion of the ticket sales will be donated to

the Ukraine relief efforts and to the Fisher House of Tampa.

Attendance Policy for playing a Concert


Attendances at

rehearsals are expectations for

a bandsman to play

in the concerts.

There could be cogent reasons that prohibit attendance at every rehearsal.

However, the band’s

policy to play in a concert include attendance of the

last four rehearsals 

plus the dress

rehearsal.

If there are unusual

circumstances that

preclude meeting

the attendance requirements,

a member may

contact the Director

in an effort to obtain

an exemption.

Section leaders are

to be informed about

any granted

exemptions of

the policy.
