The next seven days will be full of music for the Bitterroot Community Band.

The group of volunteer musicians perform every other week throughout the summer at the bandshell at Claudia Driscoll Park in Hamilton, and at the Creamery Picnic and the Ravalli County Fair.

Wednesday, August 7, the band will join with the Missoula City Band at Bonner Park in Missoula for an evening performance.

The next evening, August 8, the two band will combine again at the Daly Mansion in Hamilton for the Bitterroot group's annual "Strawberry Shortcake" concert and fundraiser. The gates will open early for those who'd like to have their picnic supper there, and the music starts at 7 p.m., with strawberry shortcake sold to the audience at intermission.

But, they're not done. Next Tuesday, August 13, the Bitterroot Community Band will be featured at the free concert series, Tuesday at 12. That noon hour performance will be on the lawn of the Ravalli County Museum at South 3rd and Bedford in Hamilton.
