Upcoming Public Performances

December 10, 2022
  • Blawenburg Band Holiday Concert December 10, 2022  3:00 pm - 4:00 pm TCNJ - Mildred & Ernest E. Mayo Concert Hall, 2000 Pennington Rd, Ewing Township, NJ 08628, USA

    The Blawenburg Band will welcome the Winter Holiday Season with free concert on Saturday December 10, 2022, at 3:00pm at the Mayo Concert Hall on the campus of the College of New Jersey in Ewing, NJ.

    Founded in Blawenburg, New Jersey in 1890, the Blawenburg Band continues a great tradition that began when towns depended on their own people for live musical entertainment. The group is one of the oldest community bands in the state and among the most active. Conducted since 1985 by Dr. Jerry Rife, Retired Professor of Music and Chair of the Fine Arts Department at Rider University, the band historically performs about 20 concerts a year throughout the area. They play at holiday parades, community celebrations, church socials, and senior centers and retirement homes. Some of the most popular and well attended public concerts are in the summer outdoor series in Hopewell Borough.

    The college is located at 2000 Pennington Road Ewing, NJ. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
