Strike Up the Band

The Arkansas City Community Band presented its first concert of the season Thursday under the direction of Chris VanGilder. Seven performances will be presented at 7:30 p.m. each Thursday in the Wilson Park Rotunda, and a special patriotic concert is on July 5. The final performance on July 15 will celebrate the 150th anniversary for both the city and the band, and will include special guests and fireworks. With its long history, the Ark City Community band is thought to be the longest running community band in Kansas history.
