There is music throughout Tyrone as the concert series continues this Friday and Sunday.
The Fun Friday series offers its second youth concert, which features two local bands. Beginning at 7 p.m. in the downtown City Hotel Park, \”Mullification\” will open the program. Comprised of four Tyrone students, this talented group performs primarily original songs written and composed by its members. Nathan Barber is lead vocalist, Tim Stivitz plays guitar, Zach Yeaton is also on guitar, and Jordan Campbell plays drums.
“A Second More Than Forever”, formally “Abandon All Hope”, will conclude the concert. This well-known local band energizes the audience with a mixture of original numbers and current hits. Shane Yingling is on bass along with Scott Ciambotti on guitar, Ben Stager on drums, and Nathan Barber for vocals.
In the event of rain, Fun Friday concerts will be held in Joybeans Coffee Shop on Tenth Street.
Reservoir Park will again be jumping to the music of the big band era as the Summer Sunday series presents “The Big Band Sound, Incorporated” at 6 p.m. on the amphitheater stage.
This talented group of musicians from a four county area is a blend of players with years of combined training and experience which is evident with their amazing sound and smooth style. With a repertoire of over 300 musical arrangements, the BBS, Inc. uses the full instrumentation of the original big bands, but has added the more up to date electric bass.
This season’s program, entitled ”Miller, Mancini, and More” promises to be a delight for all by playing arrangements from such greats as Glenn Miller, Henry Mancini, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Manhatten Transfer and many others.
The Big Band Sound, Incorporated, performs throughout Central Pennsylvania including the People’s Choice Festival in Boalsburg and Raystown Lake Amphitheater.
Summer Sunday concerts begin at 6 p.m. and, in the event of rain, will be held in the Lutheran Church on Logan Avenue and Tenth Street.
All concerts 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.
Concerts are free of charge and audience members should bring a chair or blanket for seating. For additional information, contact the Arts Line office at 684-ART2.
