The concert will be under the direction of Mike Fisher, superintendent of Charles City Community Schools.

The band will perform a variety of pieces including American and European marches, an original piece titled Memory Dance based on the music of ABBA, as well as other standards and crowd favorites.

The final performance of the season is scheduled for July 4, starting at 7:30 p.m. behind the Charles City Public Library prior to the fireworks.

About 130 music lovers brought their lawn chairs and enjoyed the local musicians, directed by Jake Gassman, as the sun started to set. Gassman is director of bands from Charles City High School.
