Thank you for the concert in the park
A huge thank you to the Morris Community Band and the UMM Symphonic Winds, under the direction of Simon Tiller, for providing a wonderful concert at East Side Park last Sunday afternoon.
The American flag snapped in the breeze, little children played on the lawn, young folks gathered on the bleachers, and older folks enjoyed the comfort of lawn chairs in the shade. Familiar marches, patriotic songs and pop music made up a delightful program. Not only was the air filled with melodies, but occasionally the actual printed music floated in the breeze. Free ice cream and good company added to the enjoyment.
The event was reminiscent of the weekly concerts in the park presented many years ago by the Morris Community Band under the direction of Walter Sarlette. Everyone present looks forward to more of these events and hopes that more people will take advantage of this great free entertainment. After all, what’s more American than a band concert in the park!
