“This has been a fantastic season for the band,” said Music Director Mark A. Taylor as he finishes his first year as music director for the Waukegan Band. "The opportunity to make music with so many talented individuals in our community is a real thrill for me. Having the chance to share that music with so many appreciative audience members is even more exciting. It is just a little bittersweet to bring the season to a close, but this is a wonderful moment to thank both the players and our audience for a summer filled with music. I can’t wait to see what this band will create in seasons to come."
With the exception of July 5th, the Waukegan Band has presented a free outdoor concert every Tuesday evening this summer beginning on June 14th and ending on August 9th. All performances start at 7:30 p.m. at the Stiner Pavilion, located on the lakefront, overlooking the harbor and beach. Many of the concert goers have mentioned the beauty of the site, great music and free parking. Come to this season’s final concert and bring a lawn chair and relax in comfort on the beautiful lakefront while listening to the music of local Lake County musicians.
