The band’s selections feature music made popular by many of the guest artists who appeared on the show over the years and will include “The Doors on Tour”, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco”, “Concert Medley From Camelot”, Tijuana Brass In Concert” and “Dave Brubeck: It’s About Time”. John Klohr’s “Billboard March” will be the music for the weekly children’s march.
Michele’s Restaurant and Catering of Stevens Point will be offering food for sale before and during the concert. Concerts are free and held Wednesday evenings through August 1. Audience members should bring chairs or blankets for seating. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held in the gymnasium at St. Paul Lutheran Church and School, 1919 Wyatt Avenue, Stevens Point.
