Band to perform concert Tuesday

June 22, 2005

The Tonganoxie Community Band's annual summer concert is set for next Tuesday.

The event, which is the culminating activity for the band, which rehearses during June, will be at VFW Park.

At the community concert, hot dogs, hamburgers and cans of soda will be available for $1 each, and serving will begin at 6 p.m. The concert will follow at 7 p.m.

Band director Charles "Mr. Van" VanMiddlesworth III said the band includes about 40 members.

"We'll be doing some patriotic numbers, some American music, and we'll be doing some pop music, as well," VanMiddlesworth said. ''... The band is performing some more difficult music this year. We're getting better. Bring your lawn chairs, bring your friends."
