The last opportunity to enjoy the music of the Fort Atkinson Community Band this summer takes place on Monday evening, Aug. 12, at Barrie Park in Fort Atkinson.
Directed by Wayne Crook, the band will begin at 7 p.m. performing “Summer Favorites,” three tunes from each of the previous concerts. Music was selected by the audience and band members for this final concert.
An ice cream social sponsored by the Fireside Dinner Theatre will begin about 6:30 p.m. and continue through the concert.
Featured on the program will be the trumpet trio of Adrian Pierce, Judy White and Lou Larson performing “Trumpetango” with band accompaniment.
