Ann Arbor Civic Band's final summer show, Wednesday in West Park, explores 'Music Legends'

By Roger LeLievre

The West Park Band Shell has been a busy place this summer, playing host to several events, including concerts by the Ann Arbor Civic Band.

The Civic Band’s last outdoor concert of the season, on Wednesday night, explores the music of the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, the Gershwins, Andrew Lloyd Weber and others.

Bill Gourley conducts the 65-75 member non-profit ensemble, founded in 1935 as an extension of the University of Michigan's School of Music

If you’re so inclined, it’s perfectly appropriate to bring a picnic supper and make an evening out of it. Bring a blanket and chair, and head on down.

The Ann Arbor Civic Band will offer “Musical Legends” at West Park Band Shell, 215 Chapin St., at 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 24. Admission is free. Anyone needing assistance to get to the band shell should park on Seventh Street (between Huron and Miller), and a cart will ferry you from the park entrance. Details: 734-994-2780.
