The band specializes in swing music from the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s and will perform favorites of the big band era. The band was formed by Mary Gibbons, former director of the Elderton High School Band, and her husband, Kevin, former director of the Kittanning Fireman’s Band. Several of the musicians are retired or current band directors and music teachers. Audiences love singing along and the nostalgia the music creates.
As our guest, the concerts are free of charge. Tours of our beautiful campus will be available before and after each performance. And you will meet our residents and have the chance to talk with them about the worry-free lifestyle at the Concordia Haven Apartments. The concerts will be held rain or shine – they are scheduled to take place on the Haven II patio, but will be moved to the Haven I dining room if inclement weather occurs. Food trucks will be on-site for every concert, weather permitting.
Walk-ins are welcome - but registration is preferred. To reserve your seat, call our Admissions Director Peggy Trettel at 724-352-5378 or email at PTrettel@concordialm.org.You can also register using the simple online form below.
This concert series is a part of Concordia Lutheran Ministries’ 140th Anniversary Celebration! Concordia was founded as an orphanage and home for the aged in 1881 by a group of Lutheran pastors in Cabot, PA. Today, we are one of the largest nonprofit senior care providers in the country – serving around 50,000 people per year in three states. As we celebrate those humble beginnings this year, we honor the legacy of those who came before us and thank God for his abundant blessings.
