Marshall City Band to open summer concert season


MARSHALL — The Marshall City Band will open their 145th concert season this Friday evening, July 3 on the Clark County Courthouse lawn at 8 p.m.

With COVID-19 restrictions and following social distancing, the band will be performing at the courthouse on the east-side lawn instead of the gazebo. We are excited to finally begin concerts and invite the public to join us.

The Marshall City Band will be playing a concert of patriotic music under the direction of Blake Reynolds.

The Marshall City Band is one of the oldest bands in Illinois; organized in 1875 and has been in continuous existence for 145 years. The band has served as an icon for the city of Marshall and surrounding areas. Members of the band range in age from freshmen in high school through adults. Many of the adults have been active members for 20-40 years.

Band concerts are free and open to the public and will be held each Friday evening through August 14. Refreshments are held in conjunction with many of the band concerts, sponsored by area organizations throughout the summer. The Lions Club will also  be present in the antique popcorn wagon.
