LOVELL – Lovell Old Home Days will kick off this year with a rousing concert by the Blue Hill Brass Quintet Thursday, July 17, at the Brick Church for the Performing Arts.

With a repertoire covering five centuries, the quintet is known both for musical excellence and family-pleasing entertainment.
