Under the direction of Conductor Ron Keller with entertaining narration by Ann Lord, the Naperville Municipal Band continued its 2017 Summer Concert Series in Central Park at 7:30PM Thursday evening, June 22.

The concert titled “Live Music is Best” featured the Naperville High School Song, written in 1931, and several tributes to Elvis Presley as many 1957 NCHS graduates were in the audience celebrating their 60th Class Reunion.
