The Westport Community Band will perform in concert with middle school musicians from seven area communities Friday, May 10, at 8 p.m. in the Bedford Middle School auditorium.

The performance includes students from schools in Weston, Wilton, Newtown, New Canaan, Norwalk, Trumbull, Stamford and Weston. The concert marks the 17th year that the Westport Community Band has invited middle school band directors to nominate students to perform with it. Students have rehearsed with the band and been mentored by the older musicians.

The band is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization of about 65 members, most from Fairfield County.
