Music To Stir The Flowers And Leaves On The Trees
There will be an added attraction for visitors to a delightful Staffordshire park later this month when a free concert is staged to provide a pleasant backdrop of live music. The City of Lichfield Concert Band will be 'coming home' to perform in the city's picturesque Beacon Park. The concert will be taking place in the Lichfield park's Museum Gardens on Sunday 19 May, between 2pm and 4pm, so visitors can enjoy up to two hours of free musical entertainment. The 45-piece City of Lichfield Concert Band will play a varied musical programme featuring show tunes, film themes, pop hits and classical greats.
Councillor David Leytham, Lichfield District Council's Cabinet Member responsible for parks, said: "Visitors to Museum Gardens in Beacon Park are in for a treat with the City of Lichfield Concert Band's performance. Highlights will include music from The Greatest Showman and The Little Mermaid, an Earth Wind and Fire medley, and Africa which was a hit for Toto. The band will once again be entertaining the crowds at our very own Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park, which is taking place this year on 7 September, but in the meantime, we are all looking forward to hearing them play at Museum Gardens later this month."
The free park concert promises something for all ages and tastes
There will be something to suit all ages and musical tastes, so everyone is invited to bring along their picnic blankets and deck chairs and be entertained in the splendid surroundings of Museum Gardens on Sunday 19 May, between 2pm and 4pm.
