“Band Day was started by the Baltimore Symphonic Band and the Southern Maryland Community Band,” said Cindy Suchanek, president and concert master of the Baltimore Symphonic Band. “Each year, the festival moves to a different community, and the venues over the years have included Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and Annapolis.”

BSB will perform John Williams’ “Olympic Fanfare,” Aaron Copland’s “Hoe Down,” Arnold Freed’s “Win, Place or Show,” Leroy Anderson’s “Home Stretch,” John Philip Sousa’s “The National Game” and more.
