The last of the summer concerts are coming up. In Racine, the Racine Concert Band finishes its summer season the first two weeks of August. On Sunday August 6, the band welcomes soprano Ami Bouterse, who will perform both classical and popular selections. Clarinetist Tim Bell will salute the great Artie Shaw.
On Sunday August 13, soprano Melissa Cardamone operatic favorites as well as music by Gershwin. Nick Stainbrook will supply the fireworks on the xylophone, literally!
And the big giveaway happens on the 13th, when all the prizes are given away in the Summer Sweepstakes Spectacular. But in order to participate, you need to enter the Racine Concert Band Quiz, held at each concert. The more entries into the quiz, the better your chances of winning a prize in the sweepstakes. So, best to attend as many of the Racine concerts as you can.
Just a reminder, the best entrance to the Zoo for the concerts is on Augusta Street.
See you there.
