The London Silver Cornet Band will perform at Court House Manor on Sunday from 2 until 4 p.m. in a free concert for the community.


Court House Manor, located at 555 N. Glenn Ave. in Washington C.H., will hold a free concert for the community this Sunday with a special guest band performing.

The London Silver Cornet Band performs numerous concerts during the year including at the Cowling Park gazebo on Main Street in London. Early incarnations of the band performed in the park 100 years ago as of this past June. The present day group recreates several of those numbers.

The band, an 18-piece orchestra, will be performing a variety of patriotic music from 1865, including Civil War era tunes such as “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “When Johnnie Comes Marching Home,” with director Thomas Lloyd who will share historical events about Fayette County.

“I remember these songs from when I was a child and my parents playing them all the time,” Jeri Flowers-Roberts, director of business development at Court House Manor said. “We are so very excited for the help of Harry Wright in setting this up and for the partnership that has been made to bring this to the community. We are really looking forward to the band coming to town and entertaining folks with some unique factual entertainment that will have some amazing music to accompany.”

This free community event will be held on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. Court House Manor encourages the community to bring a lawn chair, kick back in the shade and enjoy an afternoon of live entertainment. Lunch will be served in The Covered Bridge Café for $5, which includes pulled pork, cole slaw, dessert and drink. There will be a door prize drawing and the care community will be open for tours. This event is co-sponsored by East Ambulance and Parrett Insurance.

“There will be tents set up outside for people to sit under and relax, but if people want to sit inside and watch from the air conditioning they certainly can, but we are expecting a beautiful and sunny Sunday,” Flowers-Roberts said. “We really would love to see everyone there to enjoy some good food, friends and entertainment.”

Court House Manor is a care community offering specialized innovative rehabilitation services, high quality health care, including long and short term nursing care, and respite stays. Court House Manor has been serving the Washington Court House area for over 40 years.
