Ontario/Chaffey Community Show Band Announces July 4th 2023 Concert

The Ontario Chaffey Community Show Band will present their final performance of their 2022-2023 season with rousing patriotic and popular music for the close of the Ontario All-States July 4th Parade that will march down Euclid Avenue. We invite you to come out and bring your lawn chairs and picnic baskets to have a grand old time celebrating the 4th of July. As soon as the parade is over there will be lots of room for everybody to find a spot on the grass in front of the Bandshell at the beautiful Ontario Town Square located one block East of Euclid Ave. at the corner “B” Street and Euclid. Just a very short walk from the end of the parade, just south of the Wells Fargo Bank building. Come join in the fun and sun for Independence Day!

The Ontario Chaffey Community Show Band was founded in 1985 by R. Jack Mercer and is now under the direction of Dr. Gabe Petrocelli with assistant directors David Schaafsma and Pat Arnold.  Band members represent at least two dozen communities throughout Southern California.  Adult musicians and students are invited to participate.  Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 7 to 9:00 p.m. at the Chaffey High School Jack Mercer Band Room.  The band performs monthly concerts in the historic Gardiner W.
