America's Golden Age of Brass Bands

The Golden Age of Bands spanned from the mid-1800s until after World War I. Oswego was no less enthusiastic in its embrace of the band craze than the rest of the country, and supported four performance groups – The Oswego Band, Oswego’s Real Band, Oswego Cornet Band, and the Bickner Orchestra. Join us as a member of the Board of the Lake Oswego Pioneer Cemetery presents on the local contribution to the Golden Age of Brass Bands. Doors open at 6:30 and the presentation will begin at 7 p.m. Light refreshments provided.
