The good news about The Midtown Horns concert being postponed last week is it allowed Steven Curtis to be able to make the performance. The band has confirmed that the retired music teacher will be playing with them this Thursday night.

As I’ve now posted countless times, The Midtown Horns will be playing Classic Rock, Latin, Motown, Rhythm & Blues, and Soul as part of the Summer Concert Series. Among the players is the beloved teacher who retired after 38 years of teaching music to Southborough students. So you can expect some of his fans to be on hand.

But Curtis is just one of several members of The Midtown Horns. The band recently posted:

Trumpet player, Paul Tomashefsky and renown saxophonist, Paul Ahlstrand, two seriously badass horn players, join the Midtown Horns on July 27 to round out our 5 piece horn section , which anchors our 13 piece band!!

It’s the fourth of five free outdoor concerts taking place as part of this year’s Southborough Summer Concert Series. (For the series schedule, click here.)

The concert takes place Thursday, August 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Neary School (53 Parkerville Road).

Friends of the Southborough Youth Commission will be collecting donations for Send a Kid to Camp. Donors of $10 or more will receive a free t-shirt commemorating this summer’s concert series.

As always, the concert is on the lawn. So, bring blankets, chairs (and bug spray).

The music series is again run by Southborough Youth & Family Services and the Recreation Department. It is also co-sponsored by: Friends of Southborough Youth Commission, Southborough Cultural Arts Commission, and Friends of Southborough Recreation, and Mercedes Benz of Shrewsbury.
