The CR Municipal Band Will Kick Off BBQ Roundup Thursday Night at 8:15!

Join us for a special event and time this Thursday!  Our concert will begin at the McGrath Amphitheatre at 8:15 to kick off the 30th Annual BBQ Roundup.  Xavier High School Band Director Kelli Swehla takes over on the podium for the week with a great program that includes many audience favorites.  Enjoy the fast and flashy Festive Overture along with two John Williams movie favorites, and Neil Hefti’s “Cute” featuring Fabio Augustinis on drumset.  Something for everyone!  *Please note that as a Freedom Festival event, the BBQ Roundup and this concert do require a Freedom Festival button which can be purchased for $5.  Bring your lawn chair or sit on the wall and enjoy some great BBQ and music!
