Community Band to present final concert of season

Music Director Jim Jones of Tiskilwa conducts the Princeton Community Band in the world premiere of Robert Sheldon’s “The Red Covered Bridge.” This new work for concert band was commissioned by the Princeton Community Band and funded by donations from members of the community. It commemorates the 150th anniversary of the construction of Bureau County’s historic bridge. This world premiere performance was heard by an estimated 800 people on July 21 at Soldiers and Sailors Park in Princeton. The band’s final concert of its 2013 summer season will be at 6 p.m. this Sunday at Soldiers and Sailors Park.
