Celebration Brass Band plays a concert on the lawn at Christ Church in Guilford

GUILFORD — The Celebration Brass Band of Southern Vermont and the Christ Church Guilford Society invite everyone to a concert on the lawn of Christ Church on Route 5 in the Village of Algiers. The concert, which will honor those lost during the COVID-19 pandemic, will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 10.

The band, with its New Orleans Brass Band sound, was founded and is directed by Peter Simoneaux and features many local musicians. Brattleboro area audiences will recognize the band through their performances at Gallery Walk, the Strolling of the Heifers, and Fourth of July parades.

Christ Church Guilford Society, Inc., is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded to conserve and make use of historic Christ Church. Concertgoers will hear about the reconstruction work being done on the classic 1817 building and will be able to peek inside the sanctuary while the building is closed for repairs.

The audience is invited to bring blankets and chairs; light refreshments will be available, and children are welcome. For more information, contact Simoneaux at 603-477-1596 or [email protected], or check out the website at For more information on Christ Church's history, mission, and news, go to
