Sterling     Municipal    Band
The Sterling Municipal Band will be 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 start times will vary depending on the
length of their selected pieces, but they will perform at 6:00 pm
or a little after. It is going to be a Great year and we are also
throwing in a good ole'fashion ice-cream social. Bring the family
and enjoy free concerts and fun.
