Sterling     Municipal    Band
The Sterling Municipal Band is celebrating their 90th anniversary
since becoming a municipal band. We have a great summer
planned with several guest conductors and soloists. We also have
preconcert music lined up for most of the concerts as well. The
Sterling Municipal Band concerts start at 7:30 pm and the
preconcert music starts at 6:30 pm. It is going to be a Great year
