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.
