A Something in a Summer's Day: 3

bare feet
a big lawn
dancing children
a blanket
the setting sun
elderly folks in old-fashioned lawn chairs
bread, cheese, fresh peas, raspberries
honked applause from cars...

are all part of summer band concerts

Our friend Tom (the guy in the hat) is visiting while his brass quintet makes a swing through our area stopping at some local band stands. We are following along and loving it.

This little "Something in a Summer's Day" series is my way to catch the special moments of summer as they drift by. I have always loved band concerts. It isn't summer if you haven't heard at least one John Philip Sousa march!

One town over has these too, just love them. And they absolutely mean summer here too:-)

Outdoor concerts are so much fun, especially with a big ice cream cone to eat while listening! So far this summer, I've listened to some outdoor polka music, and some rock ;) A Bach festival is happening at the lake right now and I want to go.

One of my favorite ways to pass a summers afternoon/evening.

Playing concerts such as these used to be my summer occupation back when I was a clarinetist and not yet married. Sousa, the "Armed Forces Salute", lots of John Williams and the Carmen Dragon arrangement of America the Beautiful were all pieces I practically knew by heart - a handy skill for windy evening!

Wonderful! And look at that big expanse of open grass. We have tried to attend a few in town here, but they are so crowded you cannot move - not good for spunky kids. That looks like a lovely spot to watch.
