Our thanks to everyone who joined us at The History Center for one or both of our Week 1 performances–and our apologies to those who missed the announcement of the late-in-the-game venue change for the Sunday concert!
This week, both concerts will, in fact, be in Bever Park. Bring some sunscreen, a hat, and your love of great live music.
Tonight’s event will feature a 6:30 performance by the Iowa Youth Flute Ensemble. The Muni Band takes the stage at 7:30.
A Festival Prelude (Alfred Reed) Selections from “Sing” (arranged by Michael Brown) English Folk Song Suite (Ralph Vaughan Williams) Atlantic Zephyrs (Gardell Simons) — Featuring Rich Medd, Trombone The Syncopated Clock (Leroy Anderson) Big Band Spectacular (arranged by Jack Bullock) Hurrah Storm Galop (Claudio S. Grafulla & Keler-Bela, arranged by Nicholas J. Contorno)
The concert for tonight, 13 June, is moved to the History Center! This is due to expected temperatures in the 90s combined with direct sun on the pavement where the band would play at the park. Same great music, awesome new venue!
Yes, it’s correct — we really do have that many events at Bever Park! Due to the pandemic, things are a bit different this year. The band will be smaller (one on a part) so that we can maintain safe spacing among the musicians. We also will not be using the mobile stage this season. Unfortunately, there were few parks that would accommodate these needs, so we are playing most events at Bever Park. We’ll be at the usual spot, but sitting mostly on the parking lot pavement.
But the good news is that we have 19 concert events scheduled, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all. And yes, we do plan to also livestream these on Facebook, and we’ll also be live on KMRY Radio every week. So come on out if you can, or catch us live online or on the air if you can’t!
