The Wednesday, July 27th, concert of the Peoria Municipal Band will be broadcast live on Comcast 22 and itv3 in the Peoria area at 7:00 pm. We hope to see a big audience in the Warehouse District for this performance as we continue to work to reach out to others around our community. Newcomer Becca Largent is the vocal soloist. Clinton Linkmeyer will step out from the trumpet section and be featured with a great Herbert L. Clarke solo. Come enjoy the hospitality of Kellehers and the aura of Water Street.
This municipal band is pretty unique and has a long history with Peoria. Many of the regular and substitute members also appear as musicians at churches throughout the region. Today you have the opportunity to listen live and also take in the concert on the television.
