Concert season

 

Municipal bands are a tradition in many towns and cities nationwide, and Springfield is fortunate to have one. In fact, for over 80 years the Springfield Municipal Band has been providing summer entertainment for devoted followers and fans. The band is managed by Ken Pratt who has a bachelor’s in music theory and jazz studies, and is a 20-year band member. Tom Philbrick, who has a master’s in music education, has conducted the band for over eight years. You will find the band at Douglas Park most Tuesday evenings during the summer, but they will also perform at a variety of outdoor venues, such as the Old Capitol Plaza, Southwind Park and the Illinois State Fair, throughout the season. This weekend they are set to perform at the annual Juneteenth Celebration at Comer Cox Park. The performance is free.
