The Grand Junction Symphony Guild continues their longest ongoing fundraiser with Brats in the Park beginning at 5:30pm. Their famous brats and sauerkraut will be available for purchase as well as hot dogs, chips, soft drinks and popcorn.
The Grand Junction Centennial Band kicks off the evening’s music, as it has for the past 20+ years, at 6:30pm with The Star Spangled Banner and other great Americana tunes and marches. The Centennial Band is under the direction of Debbie Wilson.
The GJSO concludes the evening with other great patriotic tunes and a sampling of music to come during their upcoming 2017-18 concert season.
Season ticket holders of the GJSO will also have an opportunity to pick up their tickets at the concert and anyone interested in purchasing or renewing a season ticket package will be able to do so that night.
