Concert Wednesday at Taft Middle School

This week features new Iowa trumpet professor Courtney Jones on a piece composed by Cedar Rapids native Kim Scharnberg in addition to some concert band “war horses” and the gorgeous music from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.  We are hoping the rain stays away Wednesday so you can enjoy this great concert!  Pack up the kids, lawn chairs, and a picnic and head to Taft this Wednesday at 7:30!
