Event Description

Marquette City Band by OreDocks - Join Us!

Join Us — Thursdays at 7:30 Our Opening Concert for 2018 At Presque Isle Bandshell: June 14 Admission is free to the public, but donations are greatly appreciated. In 1929, John Longyear, Jr. circulated a petition and presented a plan to the city council for municipal funding to reestablish the band after a period of dormancy. The voters approved the measure, and Martin Johnson directed their first performance in 1929. The band has had an unbroken record of performance since then. Thursday night concerts have remained a staple each summer at the Presque Isle Bandshell. Occasionally there is ‘musical’ competition from the coal dock nearby, but the band plays on! In the past, on rare occasions, a deer or two has been seen roaming the seating area just before the crowds arrive for the concerts. Hope to see you there. https://marquettecityband.com/about/ Join Us Upcoming Thursdays at 7:30 At Marquette Commons: June 28 At Presque Isle Bandshell: July 12 & July 26 _________________ Annual Fourth of July Concert at 6:30 At Mattson Lower Harbor
