CLEVELAND, OHIO — This summer, The Lakeland Civic Summer Band will hold two outdoor concerts for the first time after a year-long shut due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The 60-member group will held both their concert in the city of Mentor. This group will be directed by Frank Cosenza, The Lakeland Civic Band summer conductor.
Both concerts will be held on separate dates, the first one on July 11, 2021, at 2pm at Wildwood Cultural Center, and the second on July 18, 2021, at 2pm at Mentor Civic Amphitheater. The first concert was already going on but according to their recent Facebook post, the concert on July 11 was canceled due to rain on that day. They are hoping the concert on July 18 has a better outcome.
"Unfortunately today's concert at the Wildwood Cultural Center has been canceled due to rain. Which, of course, means the sun will come out. Sigh. Here's hoping next Sunday at the Mentor Amphitheater has a better outcome!" said in their Facebook post.
The band will perform various musical performances from selected band classics, including patriotic marches, swing music, overtures, and some original compositions.
The concerts are open to the public and free of charge, but any attendees are required to do social-distancing measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. They also encouraged attendees to bring their own chairs and blankets.
The concerts are presented by Buyers Products Company and sponsored by Lake Health, Mutsko Insurance Services, Remarkable Lake County, and Mimi Vanderhaven, as part of the Mentor Cultural Arts Series.
