Smyrna Citizens Band kicks off summer concert series

SMYRNA – The Smyrna Citizens Band, on July 5, will once again gather in the bandstand above the Smyrna Public Library, 7 East Main St., for the first of its six scheduled summer performances.

Featuring a diverse group of musicians of all ages, the ensemble will celebrate 92 years of performances this year, according to band director Wilbur “Red” Raville, who has led the organization for nearly two decades.

A long time resident of the area, Raville said he is “always impressed” by the loyalty band members exhibit year after year, and considered the weekly concerts an excellent example of “small town Americana.”
