Town Band

Reed-Jim-Plummer

The Litchfield Town Band welcomes you!

 

What’s New

Our Town Band celebrates our community with friendship and music.  There’s nothing like a summer concert at the Gazebo with ice cream or a Christmas event, right?  Band leader Cindy Bennett and the Litchfield band cordially invite musicians high school age and beyond to join them in rehearsals and performances.

 

Unfortunately, the Litchfield Town Band has canceled rehearsals from January through April due the increased prevalence of COVID-19. They will reevaluate at the end of April for Memorial Day and the summer Ice Cream Socials. Stay tuned!

A Century of Music

Founded in 1901, The Litchfield Town Band’s directors and musicians were recently recognized for their dedication through the years, receiving Litchfield Township’s first historical marker! Thanks to the tireless efforts of Celia Kruggel and Cindy Bennett, The Ohio History Center has awarded our band a Historical Marker for being active for over one hundred years.  Special thanks to Jason Davis, Mike Pope, John Kruggel, Art Butcher and John Butcher for their hard work placing the marker next to the Gazebo at Circle Park.
