The Lexington Bicentennial Band

The Lexington Bicentennial Band's History

The LBB was formed in 1974 to prepare for the 200th anniversary of the Battle on the Green (April 19, 1775), and has been performing ever since!

News

The July 27th concert has been cancelled due to the threat of bad weather.

The Conductors

The music director of the Lexington Bicentennial Band is Jeff Leonard, an accomplished teacher, performer, arranger, and conductor. Al Dentino is the assistant conductor for the summer concerts.

Summer Concert Schedule

During the summer, the LBB gives a free concert each Tuesday night from Tuesday July 13th through Tuesday August 24th.

The concerts take place at the Levi Burnell Bandstand, which is in Hastings Park at the corner of Worthen Road and Old Mass Avenue. Many people bring blankets, lawn chairs, food, and games, and enjoy a relaxing summer evening of music.

Children are welcome, although parents are asked to please keep children from playing near the bandstand during the concert, out of respect for the musicians and the audience. Children (of all ages) will be invited to march around the bandstand during the last piece of each half of the concert.

All concerts begin at 7:00pm. You can check whether a concert has been cancelled (e.g., because of inclement weather) by calling 781-698-4647 after 4:30pm on the day of the concert.
