The New Cumberland Town Band wants to reach out to its’ followers and audiences that while we
wait for the coronavirus emergency to pass us by, the band anxiously awaits the chance to begin
our summer music season. Social distancing has derailed our rehearsals and May concerts.
We hope that maybe we can participate in the New Cumberland Memorial Day Ceremony on
May 25. While we practice and try our best to be prepared, we will also keep our attention glued to
what group activities Governor Wolf and our governmental leaders allow as we make progress
resisting the virus.
Most importantly, both for you and us, protect your health. Join us on Facebook or the web as
May evolves to see if our music season can get started.
