June Quarterly Newsletter

The Summer Quarterly Meeting will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2022, in the courtyard of the Salem County Historical Society. Our presenter is the Beck’s Philadelphia Brigade Band and will perform Civil War Era Music.

 

Beck's Philadelphia Brigade Band is a Civil War-era brass band portraying the brass band of the 2nd Division, 2nd Corps, 2nd Brigade of the Union Army of the Potomac in 1863. Beck's Philadelphia Brigade Band interprets an actual brass band that existed in Philadelphia from 1830 to 1876, the Beck Band No. 1, founded by the Beck family. Beck's Philadelphia Brigade Band also performs as the 12th New Jersey Regiment Band. Beck's Philadelphia Brigade Band plays the music of the Victorian era for concerts, ceremonies, balls, parades, commemorations, and the like. The band is authentically uniformed, playing music of the period on instruments that are correct for the time. Based in Southern New Jersey, we perform in NJ, PA, DE, NY, MD, DC, and VA. The Philadelphia Brigade Band has been in existence since 1991.
