Two concerts and a movie scheduled for weekend

Rock, folk and inspirational music as well as a movie are on tap for area residents as the Tyrone Regional Arts Council summer concert series continues.
Tomorrow night, the inspirational sounds of the EBC Praise Team will be featured in the “Fun Friday” series. Beginning at 7 p.m., this group of local musicians will offer the best in contemporary Christian hits. Band members include Larry Sprankle and Luther Sprankle on percussion, Bill and Sarah Ewing provide vocals, Sallie Donner on bass, Paula Rodkey on keyboard and Brett Rodkey on guitar.
The EBC Praise Team began performing four years ago and has, since that time, offered live inspirational music to audiences throughout the region.
Following the concert, the second Fun Family Outdoor Movie will begin in the M&T lot next to Joybeans Coffee Shop at dusk. Outdoor movies are made possible by a joint partnership between the Emmanuel Baptist Church and the Tyrone Arts Council.
Although licensing laws do not permit the use of the movie title, the film is described as an incredible story about an incredible family that does incredible things to save the world. In the event of rain, the concert and movie will be held in the Tyrone Community Players building on Logan Avenue.
Summer Sundays continue on July 24 at 6 p.m. in Reservoir Park as JR Mangan Band offers a program of folk, rock, and country hits. Mangan, a native of Dunmore, PA, has been a part of the State College music scene for more than 20 years. JR’s career included the formation of several bands as well as a solo show.
Currently, Mangan performs with local musicians to offer his unique blend of classic hits in a variety of musical genres. JR continues to write music and produce radio jingles, many of which can be heard on local stations.
In the event of rain, Summer Sunday concerts are held in the Lutheran Church. All concerts are free of charge and audience members should bring a blanket or chair for seating.
Concert programs are made possible by a grant from the PA Council on the Arts, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency and Tyrone Borough.
