The Colby Community Band will present its fifth annual Concert in the Park at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, in Fike Park. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the Frahm Theatre on campus. The show will be the first after a two-year pause during the pandemic.

“Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy an evening of patriotic, modern, and entertaining concert band music,” said band director Michelle Meyer. “Music is an experience to be shared. It is meant to bring the community together and heal the heart of the individual. Please come celebrate the return of the Colby Community Band, support these individuals and enjoy a pleasant evening!”

In addition to musicians from Colby, the band has members from Hoxie, Quinter, Scott City, Oakley, Atwood, Goodland and others from the area. Ages within the group range from 12 to 73 and combine for nearly 800 years of playing experience.

Those attending are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair.
