Under the leadership of Conductor Ron Keller since 1966, the Naperville Municipal Band will perform its 11-week summer concert season at 7:30PM on Thursdays in Central Park beginning June 10. Emcee Ann Lord will open the show! All concerts are free of charge and open to the public.

The 2020 Summer Concert Series was postponed due to COVID-19.

The Naperville Municipal Band was established in 1859. With the Community Concert Center in Naperville’s Central Park as its home base, the band has entertained thousands of listeners most summers during its free weekly outdoor concerts.
