The second concert of the 146th season of the Ark City Community Band will be at 7:30 p.m. June 8 under the Wilson Park rotunda. As always, the concert is free and open to the public.

A limited number of park benches are available, so concert-goers may wish to bring their own lawn chairs. RCB Bank and Coca-Cola are sponsoring hot dogs and drinks for all attendees.

This week’s concert will attempt to take the audience on a musical journey around the world, including selections such as “Jamaica Farewell,” the Brazilian children’s song “Cai, Cai, Balao,” the lovely Irish ballad “Southwind,” Holst’s “Marching Song,” Grieg’s “Norwegian Legend,” Beethoven’s “Turkish March” and others.

“Several of our concerts are strictly patriotic, so I thought it would be fun to take a different approach this week,” said director Chris VanGilder.

“We had a great first concert with a good audience, so we expect more of the same this week.”
