Piccolo players, join us in an epic performance of John Philip Sousa's "The Stars and Stripes Forever!" As we kick off Austintown's Independence Day celebration at our annual concert at Austintown Township Park, we invite piccolo players of all ages to join us to play the famous piccolo part from the final strain. We hope to have as many piccolo players as possible, so whether you play the piccolo every day or you need to blow the dust off your old instrument, we hope you'll plan to be there.

The event will take place during the finale of our concert on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, at Austintown Township Park. The concert begins at 7 pm. You may register here any time, but by the afternoon on the day of the concert, we may not have all of your information available at the venue, but that's ok -- you can still play! Please arrive early at the park, check in at the registration table to get a name tag, and join us for a brief rehearsal with the band at 6:30.

Please fill out this registration form to receive music and instructions for the performance and so we can count you in the official list of participants. Your contact information is required so we can communicate the details of the event with you as they are finalized. Your contact information will not be shared outside the Canfield Community Concert Band.
