The July 15th concert will be a celebration of not only the band’s 150th anniversary, but the city’s as well. There will be special guests and fireworks that night.

According to director Chris VanGilder: “Rehearsals have been great. We are really looking forward to putting on our normal concert series and continuing this great tradition.” “You can expect a wide variety of music at our concerts, patriotic music; traditional marches and overtures; folk songs and hymns; broadway and movie themes; a little bit for everyone’s tastes.”
