Craner, consists of 65 plus talented musicians of all ages and professions, representing all walks of life from the Lower Adirondack Area. Home venue for the band is beautiful lakeside Shepard Park Amphitheater, Canada Street, Lake George, NY. A Summer Concert Series is performed Thursday evenings during July and August. The band hosts the Lake George Festival of Community Bands in mid-July each year in which 12 to 15 community bands from the Northeast US and Canada travel to Lake George Village to perform in the two day event. The Lake George Community Band is sponsored by the Village of Lake George and the Town of Lake George, public and business donations.

Mission: Our mission is to provide the community with musical programs throughout the summer and holiday seasons, preserving the tradition of American band music and the hometown American band and to provide a musical outlet for local musicians to share and nurture their talents.

Great rehearsal tonight on Scott and Karen Rager's lawn in Queensbury. Plenty of social distancing! It took a few pieces for us to get back into it, but we DID! Some of us haven't picked up the horn in 5 months, (guilty). Embouchures were stretched and breathing was tested, but we endured. Mike did a great job and our neighbors enjoyed it also. I think we had a great turn out. Let's hope we can continue and hopefully prepare this concert for next year!

Hoping NEXT year's Community Band Festival will look like this one of 2017. We are so sad to have had to cancel this year's 2020 festival. But we are working on next years now.......Stay safe and well. (Pictured here is Honeoye Falls Community Concert Band, of Honeoye Falls, NY)

04/20/2020

An update from our LGCB Festival Committee:

Friends & Followers: It is with deepest regret that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Lake George Community Band Festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lack of rehearsal time for participating bands, social distancing and ongoing restrictions on gatherings, and our concern for the safety of the bands and audience members were a few of the many factors that ultimately led us to this decision.

Please know this was not a decision made easily. All of the participating bands have been notified.

We will greatly miss hosting you all this year - and we're already looking forward to reuniting at next year's festival! Thank you for your understanding. 🎶
