Patriotic Band Concert and Community Ice Cream Social
We're proud to coordinate the kick off of Wellington's Independence Day Celebration.
On July 3rd, the Patriots Symphonic Band, with 70 + volunteer musicians from 23 Lorain County communities, will perform a concert in the southern portion of Howk Park in downtown Wellington [Willard Memorial Square]
The performance begins at 7:00 p.m. and is free. There is no formal seating in Howk Park; so, come early with lawn chairs and blankets.
The free performance is sponsored by Mike Sunderman of Edward Jones Investments.
The family oriented concert features a wide range of repertoire, including patriotic selections, popular music, Broadway show tunes, and "Big-Band" favorites.
The Patriots Symphonic Band, Northern Ohio's largest non-profit, all-volunteer musical ensemble, has members ranging in age from teenagers to octogenarians. The Patriot Band members are amateur and professional musicians who enjoy playing music as a pastime. Formed in 1977 under the sponsorship of VFW Post 1079 in Elyria, the Patriots Symphonic Band plays both indoor and outdoor concerts throughout the year. The band strives to preserve "Americana," performing like an old-time, hometown concert band. The performance also features talented instrumental and vocal soloists.
Later at dusk, the Chamber of Commerce is featuring the Fireworks show at the Lorain County Fairgrounds.
The rain location for the concert is The Patricia Lindley Center for Performing Arts.
