Newark Post - - LOCAL NEWS - PHO­TOS BY JOSH SHAN­NON

The Ne­wark Com­mu­nity Band cel­e­brated its 35th an­niver­sary Sun­day with a free con­cert at the First Pres­by­te­rian Church of Ne­wark.

Un­der the di­rec­tion of David Har­ris, the band per­formed clas­si­cal, Latin, theater and folk pieces, lively marches and the pop­u­lar Brubeck jazz num­ber “Take Five.”

Founded in 1983, the band was cre­ated as a place for lo­cal mu­si­cians to con­tinue pur­su­ing their mu­si­cal in­ter­ests af­ter they grad­u­ate from high school or col­lege. It has dozens of per­form­ers of all ages, in­clud­ing two who have been with the band since its found­ing.

The band prac­tices reg­u­larly at the Ne­wark Mu­nic­i­pal Build­ing and holds sev­eral per­for­mances around the area each year.
