To The Editor:

Ogdensburg Command Performances had planned on presenting the U.S. Army Field Band Jazz Ambassadors as a thank-you to the community for their support of OCP for 50 years. This would have been a free concert near the end of June, and the board and membership were anticipating it with great excitement. I could almost feel us swaying to the beat of their resounding music.

Unfortunately, due to federal budget cuts, the band’s entire spring and summer schedule of shows has been cancelled. We at OCP deeply regret having to cancel this performance, and are sorry to disappoint our supporters. We do want you to know how much we appreciate both your attendance at shows and also your generous donations that have kept OCP going and growing for 50 years.

It has been our pleasure to bring live professional theater to the north country for so long, and we hope to continue well into the future.

Lin Griffin

President

OCP Board of Directors
