Springfield Band cancels summer season

With regard to the health and safety of band and audience members, the board of officers of the Springfield Community Band has canceled the band’s summer season. Continued restrictions on social distancing, gathering sizes and recommendations for masks all contributed to our decision.

The board will continue to monitor CDC guidelines as well as recommendations from the Vermont Department of Health as it works to reconnect in the fall.
