March Music!

With March comes spring, and with spring comes the sound of more birds singing around us. Spring also brings the sound of musical events to the area.

On Wednesday, March 10, the Watsonville Community Band will be coming to town to perform its annual Spring Concert. The members of the band are musicians from Santa Cruz, Monterey, Santa Clara, and San Benito counties. Place: Veteran's Memorial Building on San Benito Street. Never been there? It's easy to find. Just head into historical downtown Hollister and find parking once you come to a big white building with columns on the east side of the street. Time: 7:30 p.m. And, it's free!  You can't beat that price.  For more info about the band, click over to its Web site.
