JAMESTOWN – The City Summer Bandshell Concert series will feature the Jamestown Municipal Band as directed by Rick Lundquist at 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 15. The free concert series is held at the Goranson Bandshell in Allen Park.
This week’s concert theme is “Christmas In July” and will be a children’s concert. It will feature a guest story teller during intermission. There also will be children activities at the concert.
The Jamestown Municipal Band has performed in Allen Park since the 1950s, with musical events being held annually since the construction of the bandshell in 1966.
In addition to funding provided annually by the City of Jamestown, these concerts are made available free to the public through the support of the following: Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, The United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County Projects Pool Grant Program, Allen Park Women’s Club, Local 134, American Federation of Musicians, Scandinavian Studies Program, Fessenden, Laumer & DeAngelo, Lind Funeral Home, Salon 1, and Wegmans.
As in previous years, members of the Allen Park Women’s Club will continue in their tradition of providing coffee, fudge and other baked goods during all of the concerts.
All concerts are free to the public and everyone is urged to bring their lawn chairs, blankets or park their vehicles close by and listen to the music from the comfort of their car.
