The Tallahassee Senior Center and Foundation invite you to join them this evening beginning at 7:30 p.m. for the annual Celebrate America concert. This musical celebration features explosive, patriotic themed jazz and concert band music in celebration of our nation’s 236th birthday. This red, white and blue themed event takes place in the auditorium on the second floor of the Tallahassee Senior Center, located at 1400 North Monroe Street.
The Celebrate America concert will feature spectacular performances by the Capital City Concert Band and the Tallahassee Community College Jazz Band. Both bands are composed of Tallahassee Community College (TCC) students and members of the local community who enjoy playing music in their free time. The groups have regular performances at TCC, as well as venues and events around the Tallahassee area.
"This concert packs the house every year. It will stir everything ‘Americana’ in your heart. We gladly welcome all toe tappers, aisle dancers and seat conductors who just want to have a great time,” said Sheila Salyer, director of the Senior Center. “The center is proud to host this event for the community, and we are grateful to TCC for their presentation."
This is a family-friendly event that is sure to put you in the mood for Wednesday's Fourth of July festivities. All proceeds from the Celebrate America concert go to support the Tallahassee Senior Center and Brehon Family Services. The suggested adult donation is $5. Children are free.
