The Clayton Community Band has become a mainstay of Clayton’s entertainment at the Clayton Opera House, where the Band proudly performs as its Resident Ensemble. All of its members and conductor are volunteers, and this dedicated and committed ‘family of musicians’ works very closely together to share its love of making music. Now in its tenth season, the Band continues to grow in membership with fifty plus members. These members represent a wide range of ages, and encompass about twenty communities from the North Country and beyond. Every Tuesday evening from the beginning of March through mid-December, music from the Band resounds from within the Clayton Opera House. Nearly all of our performances have been benefit concerts, with thousands of dollars of total proceeds going to the Thousand Islands Performing Arts Fund and to charities and organizations such as Hospice of Jefferson County. In recognition of this, the Northern New York Community Foundation the Clayton Community Band by naming them as recipients of the Foundation’s 2012 Spirit of Philanthropy Award. The Clayton Community Band’s concerts are accessible to all, and any student accompanied by an adult is always admitted at no charge. The Band’s concerts continue to encompass music which appeals to the Band members and to their audiences.
