St. Marys Community Band to perform in Parkersburg Tuesday

PARKERSBURG — St. Marys Community Band will be performing at 7 p.m. Tuesday as part of the Artsbridge Music Fest at Southwood Park on the “Al Smith” music stage.

St. Marys Community Concert Band has been performing for the Mid-Ohio Valley for the past 18 years originally under the direction of Williams Duer but for the past 10 years co-directed by Dave Burton and Rocky Wiseman. The band first consisted of alumni from the St. Marys High School band but over the years has grown and now its members are not only from Pleasants County, but also from all the surrounding counties from both West Virginia and Ohio. Members range in age from high school to seniors. The band performs ten or more concerts each season throughout the Mid-Ohio Valley.

There will be pizza, pepperoni rolls, and drinks available for purchase from DiCarlo’s Pizza. Tuesday’s performance is sponsored by Community Bank. The concert is free and open to all. Bring a lawn chair for seating.
