This week, join the Municipal Band at Johnson STEAM Academy on Wednesday, June 12, or Ellis Park on Sunday, June 16 (or both!).

On Wednesday, the New Horizons Band will perform at 6:30 p.m. followed by the Muni Band at 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. The concerts will also be livestreamed on the band’s Facebook page:

The Muni Band will feature Josh Duffee on drum set honoring the 100th birthday of Louie Bellson. Young Artist Competition runner-up Jace Whitham will perform on alto saxophone. And kids of all ages will feel like superheroes as the band play music from The Incredibles.
