The first concert of the summer concert series on May 29 was moved indoors to the high school, not because of the threat of rain but due to wet grass and spots of standing water on the green.

Participants in the Bandstand concert didn't let that dampen their spirits though, Hudson High School auditorium was the perfect place to enjoy Hudson High School Jazz I & II ensembles. Participants listened to the soulful sounds created by our incredibly talented youth, with dry feet. Ever wonder how the Hudson Bandstand Committee makes the decision to move in doors? Like many of us, they search the weather reports and sometimes "eyeball" the green themselves. Due to the sound equipment and needs of musicians, a clear sky and dry grass is imperative. The call to move indoors must be made by 2 p.m. for the school to prepare their resources. Hopefully the school won't have to be taxed too much by this generous donation and Hudson residents and visitors from surrounding towns, will be able to enjoy good weather for the concerts.

On June 4 at 7 p.m., the Hudson Bandstand Committee, with sponsorship support from the Tobin Fund for Art, Culture and Preservation -- a fund of the Hudson Community Foundation, welcomes back the Dan Zola Orchestra. Whether it's Swing, Latin, a Waltz or the Fox Trot this band will spark nostalgia as the green (or high school auditorium) is filled with the sounds of the Big Band era.
