Carter Mountain Brass Band Concert 9/10

Carter Mountain Brass Band Concert September 10

The Carter Mountain Brass Band will present their annual "thank you to the church" concert on Sunday afternoon, September 10 at 3:00 PM. Under the direction of Mike Mikuski, the band will present a varied program of favorites from Sousa to Glenn Miller.

The suggested donation is $8.00 with all proceeds going to the church to support its role in the community. Our building supports a variety of community groups who use it for meetings, rehearsals and other functions. It is a true treasure, one that Carter Mountain appreciates by giving back with this concert. Come join us for an afternoon of good music and fun while supporting a good cause.
