The West Central Ohio Community Concert Band will be joined by a choir when it presents “The Longest Day,” a free program of patriotic songs, at 7 p.m. Sunday, July 21, in Melvin Miller Park.
Celebrating its 28th year under the direction of William Barrett of West Liberty, the 55-member volunteer band includes musicians from high school age to those over 80. The musicians live in Champaign, Logan and surrounding counties.
Organized as a nonprofit corporation, the band receives funding from donations and has performed in West Central Ohio, at the state fair and in Washington, D.C.
The band will perform at 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, in conjunction with an ice cream social at Mac-A-Cheek Castle, just east of West Liberty.
