Cedar Rapids Municipal Band Concert Wednesday with the Marion Community Band!

Wednesday is a special joint concert with the Marion Community Band in Lowe Park!  This week’s program features our own: Joe Perea on steel pans, Christine Bellomy on klezmer clarinet, and Caleb Lambert on trombone.  The kids will enjoy hearing a medley from “Frozen,” the slightly older kids (and fun-loving adults) will enjoy music from “The Avengers,” we have a medley of marches from the biggest Broadway hits, and we close it out with one of the most popular calypsos of all time.  The Marion Community Band plays at 7:00 and we follow at 8:00!
