Description: Summer wouldn't seem like summer without this annual "Concert in the Park," performed by the Kennett Municipal Band. The band has played as part of the Independence Day Celebration since 1989. A wide variety of music for the program will include John Philip Sousa marches (“The Stars and Stripes Forever” and “The Liberty Bell”), a Beatles medley, Broadway show tunes (from Wicked, Hairspray, and Gypsy), a tribute to our Armed Forces, and enduring works from composers George Gershwin, David Holsinger & Justin Timberlake.

The Band is directed by Nicholas Webb, Director of Bands for Kennett Public Schoolst. Band members range from students in high school to retired citizens, are from the Missouri Bootheel, Arkansas, and Tennessee, and represent a variety of occupations. The Band is proud of the diversity of the ages and experiences of its members. Concert-goers are reminded to bring lawn chairs, ground coverings, and refreshments to enjoy the concert from the grass in front of the bandstand. The Kennett Park Department will provide a clean and nearly-bug-free Jones Park and assorted benches and tables.

So gather up the family for an evening of entertainment under the stars. Remember to bring your lawn chairs, ground covering and any refreshments. If the weather turns bad, the alternate performance site is Kennett High School Auditorium, West Washington at the North Bypass. The date and time remain the same.
