Veterans Day Concert

PLAISTOW - The Timberlane Community Band, in an annual and patriotic collaboration with neighboring Windham Community Band, invites one and all to a musical tribute honoring our brave and distinguished veterans. The Veterans Day performance will take place on Sun., November 11, at 2:00 p.m., at the Timberlane Performing Arts Center, Greenough Road, Plaistow.

Tony DiBartolomeo and John Mainella, musical directors of the Timberlane musicians, along with Jared Cassedy and Becky Pierce, Windham’s director and conductor, have taken great time and effort in choosing a complementary and appropriate repertoire, reflecting the courage, dignity and patriotism of all our Armed Services on this special day.

The musical homage will commence with an ROTC Color Guard, and accompanying bag piper. For the first time, our local Boy Scout troop will attend and respectfully lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. The keynote speaker will be Lieutenant-Colonel Patrick Testerman, currently the ROTC Commander at UNH, Durham. He has served over 20 years in the U.S. Air Force as a navigator in the B-1 Bomber and more recently as a pilot in the F-15. A newly updated and stirring video/slide presentation will follow.

Admission is FREE and a wide range of homemade refreshments will be provided by the musicians.

Please join the community bands, the veterans, their family and friends, as we give a heartfelt thanks to all those who have proudly served.

For further information, please contact TCB’s Rick Incollingo at 603.898.4959. More about the Timberlane Community Band can be found at our website www.timberlanecommunityband.org
