Czech us out at Bever Park Sunday evening!

It’s Czech week with the Cedar Rapids Municipal Band!  We celebrate Cedar Rapids’ Czech heritage with some long-lost Czech gems in a variety of styles ranging from marches to beautiful lyrical pieces.  In addition to some fantastic Czech music, you will also enjoy a medley from Rent, Irving Berlin showstoppers, and a flashy xylophone solo by UNI professor Matt Andreini.  Sunday is looking to be a gorgeous evening for an outdoor concert!  Pack a picnic and your posse for a beautiful evening of music at Bever Park starting at 7:30!
