Summer Special Free Event

July 28th

Nashua Community Concert Association in Partnership

with Nashua School District & Nashua SummerFun

Presents

The Newmont Military Band

Saturday July 28th 7pm

Nashua South HS

The Newmont Military Band was formed 1995. Original instrumentation followed that of the many cornet bands in existence in the late 1890s. Several years later the band added woodwind instruments so, following the conventions of the late 19th century, we became a "Military" band. Most of the brass instruments played were manufactured during the 19th century. A few are more modern but follow designs of that era. These brass instruments, cornets (not trumpets), alto horns, tenor horns, baritone, and tubas, because they are conical, have a more mellow sound than most modern brass instruments. Our music was borrowed from the archives of the American Band of Claremont, New Hampshire, The Library of Congress, and other sources. As it is authentic or reproduced late 19th century music, it is scored differently than music played by modern bands. Examination of our uniforms reveals that not all are identical. However, our photos of the Windsor (Vt.) Military Band performing at the summit of Mt. Ascutney in 1903, show that this was the norm for a New England town band. The uniforms we are wearing today replicate those worn by the Windsor Band in that picture. It is a common misconception that there were no women in these 19th-century town bands. Historically, women did participate, although it was thought by most that it was not seemly for a woman to place herself on display that way. The village of Lockhaven, N.H. (part of Enfield), was proud of its Lockhaven Ladies Cornet Band. Our program is representative of the music played on the town green in the late 19th century. There are songs of the Civil War, love songs, marches (including Sousa's!), dances, and songs from the old folks. Many of our musical selections are chosen from American Band and Windsor Military Band programs documented in the Claremont Advocate and the Vermont Journal between the years of 1890 and 1905.
