TOWN BAND (2022)

“A band’s commitment to keep going.”

-Jon Kalish, NPR

For over eighty years, in the summer, the Callicoon Center Band has been playing for one hour on Wednesday nights, rain or shine. Local music teachers, merchants, social workers, teens, and retirees commit to keeping traditional waltzes, polkas, and show tunes alive.

In this crowd-pleasing short documentary made for an all-ages audience, Academy Award nominated® director Alice Elliott celebrates how live music brings a community together and, for the length of the concert, pushes away their problems.
