CONCERT: Lake City Stinger Band: Sunday, August 7 at 7pm in the Armory. Under the direction of Mike Pearce, there will be 60 musicians presenting an extraordinary band concert, entitled "Music of the Circus, the Movies, and More."
"Music made famous under the circus big top or in movie theaters and opera stages provides musical fare for the Stinger Band’s 2016 Concert, themed “Music of the Circus, the Movies, and More.” Slated for Sunday, August 7 at 7pm in the Armory and free to the public, the concert is the culmination of what has become known as our August Concert Weekend.
Participants in the weekend, August 5-7 this year, include 45 amateur musicians from community bands and orchestras throughout the Southwest who join the local Lake City Stinger Band for extensive rehearsal time, in order to present the aforementioned concert for the Lake City community. Between Friday afternoon and Sunday noon, the band will practice a total of eight hours!
Most visiting musicians will arrive in Lake City on Friday, August 5, stay in our lodging facilities, eat in our restaurants, shop in our stores, and take in the beauty of our area. If you see them around town, please welcome them to Lake City!"
Free to the public; donations accepted.
