Our award-winning Town Band

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.

The Litchfield Town Band cordially invites musicians high school age and beyond to join us in rehearsals and performances! Following the 2019 summer performance season, the band will rehearse Tuesday, October 8 from 7:30-8:30 pm at the Town Hall in preparation for Medina County’s annual Fall Foliage Tour.  We will perform on Saturday, October 12 from 2-3 pm in the Gazebo (weather permitting) or in the old Firehouse in conjunction with tours hosted by the Litchfield Historical Society.

 

With deep regret and until further notice, the Litchfield Town Band has cancelled its spring and summer band season for 2020.  Please check back here or contact Cindy Bennett at 419.652.2224 or cfbennett.60@gmail.com for any future updates.
