The Morris Plains Community Band, a twenty-five piece traditional concert band, will perform a free holiday concert on Wednesday, December 21st at 7:00 pm in the Morris Plains Borough School Auditorium.
The musical selections will include traditional American music, patriotic songs, marches, Broadway show tunes, Movie themes and Holiday Music. A special highlight of the concert will be the performance of “The Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah”, at which the band will accompany a choir of local singers.
The Morris Plains Community Band was originally founded in 1888 and led by local blacksmith Larry Monahan for fifty-two years until his death in 1940. The band was renamed the L. Monahan Memorial Band in his honor and continued to perform until it finally disbanded in 1953. Reactivated in 2015, the band rehearses on Wednesday evenings in the Morris Plains Borough School Band Room, and is made up of musicians ranging in age from twelve to eighty.
Designed to be a no-pressure opportunity for musicians of all levels and all ages, the music is easy (about junior high level), there is no cost, and just as important, no commitment or obligation. People are welcome to participate on any basis that they enjoy and fits their lifestyle. The player who joins us occasionally is just as welcome as the musician that attends every week.
The group performs monthly concerts; mostly for people that don’t get an opportunity to hear live music very often – nursing homes, senior citizen groups, etc. And again, participation in the concerts is just as optional as the rehearsals.
The Morris Plains Community Band is conducted by Larry Ripley, a retired musician and bandleader who is the third member of his family to lead a town band.
