MOUNT PULASKI -- A pitch-perfect performance under a picture-perfect summer evening sky was enjoyed by the largest crowd of the summer community band concert series in Mount Pulaski.

Nearly 100 folks heard an Americana fest of old-time favorites that conjured up many memories, enhanced by director Harry Hild during his introductions of each selection with some of its background history.

One of the closing pieces, "Semper Fidelis," brought to mind the Mount Pulaski High School Band booming out this famous Sousa march as they strutted through the streets before school sessions.

It was announced that the band's next performance will be following Saturday's parade at the annual Mount Pulaski Fall Festival on Sept. 7.
