The Alton Municipal Band continues its concert season tonight, and all Sunday shows this season will have an earlier start time. The band will perform this evening at Haskell Park starting at 7pm, an hour earlier than last year. The change in the start time on Sundays is in reaction to requests from members of the audience, according to band director David Drillinger:
Each week, the show has a different theme for the Thursday/Sunday schedule. The popular Children's Concert is June 21 and 24 and the patriotic themed concerts will be June 28 and July 1. The Thursday shows remain at 8pm at Riverview Park. The season runs through August 9, with the final show at LCCC inside Hatheway Hall.
