Babahatchie Community Band concerts are a part of Americana in Harriman.
This is especially true of the next concert at 3 p.m. Sept. 25 at Harriman Riverfront Park. Admission is free.
“This concert is mostly music by American composers with one exception,” said Babahatchie band member Alison Westrich. “‘Amparito Roca’ was composed by Jamie Texidor, a Spanish composer from the early 1900s. He wrote this and named it after a student of his.”

Salt has many powers. The interplay of salt and water is essential to life itself, and a proper salt balance is vital to our well being.
