The last 100 days (as of this writing) have composed one incredible musical journey for Donald Jemella, conductor of the newly formed Lowcountry Community Band.
It all began when Andrea Sisino, director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of South Carolina-Beaufort, approached Jemella with the suggestion to form a community band. It was something Jemella, with his background as a graduate of the Boston Conservatory and a holder of both a bachelor’s degree and master of music degree, had been pondering for several months.

Bluffton, Hilton Head Island’s quirky next-door neighbor, has many traditions. Oyster roasts along the May, the New, the Okatie or whatever river happens to be closest. Low tides spent with the bow of your boat sunk in the sandbar. No see ‘ums that can and will take out an adult human being with extreme prejudice.
But one tradition looms large above them all. It’s not just a celebration of everything Bluffton, it’s a celebration of the majestic May River, the lifeblood of the town.
“It’s everything a small home town festival should be with local music and food, arts and crafts, fun for kids and adults and best of all... a chance for everyone to visit on the street with old and new friends.” said Blufftonian Karen Lavery
The 34th Annual Bluffton Village Festival, or MayFest as nearly everyone actually calls it, will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 12. Every year thousands of visitors from all over the Lowcountry come together to visit Old Town Bluffton and spend Mother’s Day weekend strolling along festive Calhoun Street, taking in the blend of sophisticated arts and homespun good times that sets Bluffton apart from nearly anywhere in the world.
