[June 19, 2013]  MOUNT PULASKI -- Wednesday the Mount Pulaski Community Band will present the first of four summer evening concerts -- this one in the bandstand on the Mount Pulaski Courthouse lawn, where attendees will nestle themselves in their lawn chairs in the shade of the courthouse and trees, in addition to those comfortably reclined in their cars parked on the southeast side of the square. All performances begin promptly at 7 p.m.

Conductor Harry Hild introduces each piece with interesting background information.

Performances last year included these selections: "Aztec Fire," "Escapada," "It Don't Mean a Thing," "Hymn to the Saints," "Bridgeview," "Thames Alley March," "Acclamations," "Bugle Call Rag," "Morning Has Broken," "March Militaire," "Raise Your Joys and Triumphs High," and "Transit of Venus." Of course, the "Star-Spangled Banner" is always played.

Sponsors are Mount Pulaski Grade School, Mount Pulaski Park District, AMP Studios, Bill and Judy Cavestani, and the Tomlinson Trust.
