CHATHAM, NJ - Juniper Village and the Chatham Community Band joined together Tuesday for an evening of jazz standards, show tunes and Sousa Marches to the delight of many.

In an annual mid-Summer Tradition the Community Band had Juniper residents and their families clapping and singing along to George M. Cohan classics “Give My Regards to Broadway” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” as well as medleys from “The Music Man” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

On a typically warm July evening, veteran music director and conductor Brian Conti amusingly noted that, unlike evenings in many previous years, there was no threat of rain calling to move the outdoor concert indoors.
