Week Five: A Hat Trick of Concerts!

Greetings, music lovers! This week, the Municipal Band is playing THREE events, all free. This Wednesday, we’ll be at Noelridge Park near the lagoon at 7:30. We have a bonus concert on Saturday, 6 July, downtown at the Farmers Market in Greene Square Park — downbeat is at 10:00 AM sharp. (Well, not sharp…we’ll play in tune. Rimshot!) And we’ll end the week at 7:30 Sunday at Ellis Park.

In honor of our nation’s birth, our theme this week is America, and in keeping with this, some of our nation’s veterans will post the colors prior to our concert on Wednesday.

The program is:

  • Fanfare/Star Spangled Banner, vocals by Nathaniel Smale
  • American Overture for Band
  • American Patrol
  • They Can’t Take That Away From Me, with guest artist Kelsey Madsen
  • Armed Forces Salute
  • American Faces
  • America The Beautiful, with guest artist Kelsey Madsen
  • Americans We
  • Hoagy Carmichael
  • Mack the Knife, with guest artist Kelsey Madsen
  • The Stars and Stripes Forever
  • Cedar Rapids Song of Dedication, vocals by Nathaniel Smale

Please join us in saluting our great nation!
