GLENDALE COMMUNITY BAND BRINGS MUSIC TO DOWNTOWN GLENDALE SUMMER EVENINGS
Glendale’s favorite summer tradition is back for its 49th season beginning June 4 in downtown Glendale. The eight-week concert series takes place each Thursday at 8 p.m., beginning June 4 through July 23, in the Murphy Park Amphitheater, located at 58th and Glenn drives. Music lovers of all ages will be entertained by this community band of approximately 100 musicians with its inspiring renditions of marches, polkas, movie medleys and other worldly tunes. The Glendale Summer Band is the longest- running community band in Arizona. The ages of the volunteer band members span several generations. The band was formed in 1966, originally playing at O’Neil Park, and moving to Murphy Park when the amphitheater was built. These free concerts are the perfect night out for the entire family, or bring your friends, neighbors, the whole gang! Bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase at the concerts, which will go on through July 23. The series will feature a special Patriotic performance on Thursday, July 2, entitled “Celebrate America!” in celebration of Independence Day, as well as other themes each week, including Broadway and cinematic favorites, audience choice, marches and popular and traditional favorites. The Glendale Summer Band concert series is sponsored by Glendale Civic Pride. For more information, call the Glendale’s Special Events hotline at 623-930-2299, or visit www.glendaleaz.com/events.
