The Southampton Community Band has announced its upcoming season. Entering its 16th year, this volunteer band consists of 70 members.
The four subscription programs scheduled for November 23rd, January 18th, March 22nd and May 17th will again be held at Klinger Middle School on Second Street Pike in Southampton.
