The perfect way to spend father’s day: Cedar Rapids Municipal Band concert!

The dads and grand-dads in your life will love finishing their day with the Cedar Rapids Municipal band on Sunday at Ellis!  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.  Find us near the river at Ellis and get there early to hear CR Jazz at 6:15!
