We are always adding to our schedule.
The NVCB performs throughout the year at many community events in the region. We appear annually in the Memorial Day observance in Harvard and at Fourth of July parades in Ayer and Harvard. We also perform regularly at bandstand concerts, town events, craft fairs, nursing home events, and more. All performances are free and open to the public.
