CR Municipal Band Concert Sunday at Ellis Park!

It is our last concert of the summer at Ellis Park and after rain interrupted our Wednesday concert, tomorrow is a concert not to miss!  This week features a unique clarinet solo by Christine Bellomy, Kevin Sims as our first rapper on “My Shot” from Hamilton, and favorites from the Wizard of Oz and Louis Armstrong.  Sunday evening looks like perfect weather for an outdoor concert!  Pack your lawn chair, family and friends, and a picnic and join us at Ellis at 7:30 PM!
