Summer Concert Band Series Kicks Off

Summer Concert Band Series Kicks Off

by Emily Baird on June 7, 2010

The Zanesville Memorial Concert Band is kicking off its summer series at Zane Landing Park.

It had a special treat for those attending tonight. The concert featured an honors band made up of local high school students from the area.

"There’s just a lot of energy and excitement…a love of music in these students. It’s great to be able to work with them outside of school, " says artistic director, Jeff Roquemore.

Roquemore says they try to keep people coming back for more with each concert, which is why they play a variety of selections.

"Everybody, if they don’t hear a patriotic tune, a standard march, a jazz tune, or something from Broadway, they go away disappointed. So, we try to touch on everybody’s favorites, " says Roquemore.
