WELLINGTON, Ohio - June 23, 2015 - PRLog -- On Friday, July 3rd, the Patriots Symphonic Band, with 70 volunteer musicians from 23 Lorain County communities, will perform a concert on the steps of the Town Hall.  Conducted by musical director Harry Pfingsten, the performance begins at 7:00 p.m. and is free.  There is no formal seating in Howk Park; so, come early with lawn chairs and blankets. At dusk (around 9:30 p.m.) the Wellington Chamber of Commerce sponsors the popular annual Independence Day fireworks at the Lorain County Fairgrounds.

A free, “Old Fashioned, Ice Cream Social” starts at 6:00 p.m., courtesy of Velvet Ice Cream. Wellington’s Village Market is providing the cones.

The free performance is sponsored by Mike Sunderman of Edward Jones Investments.  The concert features a wide range of repertoire, including patriotic selections, popular music, Broadway show tunes, and “Big-Band” favorites. The concert promises to be family-oriented with appeal to audiences of all ages.

The Patriots Symphonic Band, Northern Ohio's largest non-profit, all-volunteer musical ensemble, has members ranging in age from teenagers to octogenarians. The Patriot Band members are amateur and professional musicians who enjoy playing music as a pastime. Formed in 1977 under the sponsorship of VFW Post 1079 in Elyria, the Patriots Symphonic Band plays both indoor and outdoor concerts throughout the year. The band strives to preserve "Americana," performing like an old-time, hometown concert band. The performance also features talented soloists.
