Group Photo taken August 12, 2015

The Bridgton Community Band, celebrating its 78th birthday in 2016, is one of the few remaining community bands in the State. For seven weeks during the summer, volunteer musicians principally from the Bridgton area, but others from various parts of the country, present a lively, FREE concert to locals and visitors alike. The members, dressed in their new red Polo shirt uniforms, play a wide variety of music from rousing marches to classical pieces. The Band has had only six directors; Dick Albert held office the longest for twenty-eight years and the current director, Natasha Proctor, has conducted our Band for thirteen years now.

Many people from the local area faithfully attend each week, while visitors to our area are excited to experience this unique activity. Audiences can range from children to seniors and number up to 150 or more.

This summer, the Bridgton Community Band will participate in parades at Bridgton's 4th of July celebration, at Casco Days and the Fryeburg Fair. Rehersals begin each year on the first Monday of May and continue through mid-August at Stevens Brook Elementary School at 7 p.m. There is no age criteria for membership. Interested musicians should contact Ms. Proctor at a concert or via e-mail to If you have visitors who are musically inclined, they are welcome to join in with us.
