The Newton Municipal Band is joining forces with Newton’s youngest and brightest musicians at its opening concert of the season on tonight at the Fred Maytag Bowl in Maytag Park.

Approximately 55 fifth- and sixth-grade band students of Deb Stoulil will take the stage at 7 p.m. to open the concert. The combined bands will play several pieces, including “Popcorn,” complete with popping sounds and motion. Following the combined portion of the concert, the municipal band will round out the evening with a variety of toe-tapping tunes. The concert will be directed by Dan Stecker, director of bands at Pleasantville.  

This is the first of four summer concerts in the park to be presented by the Newton Municipal Band. All are welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets or sit on the benches in front of the bowl. Domino’s Pizza will be on hand selling pizza by the slice. Following the concert, the band students will have pizza courtesy of Domino’s.
