Garmany Music Series: Survivors Swing Band

Survivors Swing BandBack by popular demand! On Tuesday, May 19, the Farmington Libraries will host the Survivors Swing Band for a performance of classic favorites from the Big Band era. This event will take place at 2:00 p.m. at the Main Library at 6 Monteith Drive.

The Survivors Swing Band is a 7-piece ensemble made up of recent retirees and senior citizens, calling themselves the “Survivors” in acknowledgement of some of the original band members who had passed away, as well as in recognition of those beloved old melodies that remained favorites despite the passage of the decades. Come celebrate the nostalgic 1940s with hits from Tommy Dorsey, Glen Miller, and other favorites. More information about the Survivors Swing Band can be found on their web site: www.survivorssb.com.

This event is made possible by Richard P. Garmany through a grant awarded by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. The Farmington Libraries will be hosting a variety of performances throughout the year as part of the Richard P. Garmany music series.

This event is free and open to the public. Please register in advance for this program by calling the library at 860-673-6791, using the online registration form, or visiting the Information Services Desk.

The Farmington Library is part of the Farmington Village Green and Library Association. If you have special needs to attend library programs, contact the library in advance.
