Bristol Town Band cancels early summer concerts
BRISTOL — The Bristol Town Band has canceled its June and July concerts because of COVID-19 concerns.
At this time it’s still possible that performances could resume in August, but a decision about that will be made at a later date.
“We will really miss playing on the green on Wednesday nights, and we appreciate all the support that the Town and Rec and Police Departments have shown for our band and larger community,” wrote band representative and Bristol Recreation Department staffer Alex Mihavics in Front Porch Forum post announcing the cancellation last weekend.
Officials made the decision after consulting with Rep. Mari Cordes, D-Lincoln, Mihavics said.
Cordes is a nurse who has been deeply involved in Vermont’s community and health care responses to the pandemic.
The Bristol Town Band had planned to celebrate its 150th anniversary this summer, but that has now been postponed until 2021.
