Celebrate America Sunday at MCGRATH AMPHITHEATER with the CR Municipal Band!

*** Corrected event location — we’re at McGrath this week, not Bever. Sorry for the confusion! ***


There is something to please everyone this week! Join us on Sunday at McGrath Amphitheater for your patriotic favorites in honor of the Fourth of July, your favorite oldies with a medley from the musical Jersey Boys, a flashy flute solo performed by Prairie High School’s Amanda Happel, and two vocal favorites performed by Lynne Rothrock. In addition to great music, we will also feature a children’s march on the Stars and Stripes Forever! This is a great week to gather folks who have never been to a Municipal Band concert and bring the kids! Concert begins at 7:30 at McGrath Amphitheater!
