Concert, Cruise-In car show planned at Fairbanks Park this weekend

TERRE HAUTE — A band concert and car show will be staged in Fairbanks Park on Saturday.

Cars will be on display from 6 to 9 p.m. on the roadway surrounding the amphitheater in Fairbanks Park and the concert runs from 8 to 9 p.m. The combined events are free.

The Cruise-In car show is a fund-raiser for the National Guard Association of Indiana scholarship program. The event, in its sixth year, is considered “open class,” which means that any type of car may be entered. regardless of make, model or year. Attendees can expect to see customized, antique and sports cars on display. Owners of cars entered in the event pay a fee to show their car and entries are accepted on-site.

The theme of the Terre Haute Community Band concert is “An American Adventure,” with marches, rhapsodies and folk music included in the playlist, from the traditional strains of the spiritual “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” to the exuberance of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” “American Rhapsody,” by Clare F. Grundman, is based on several American folk songs including “Down in the Valley” and “Little Brown Jug.” “Prime Time Toon Revue,” a light-hearted collection of television themes, balances the solemn tones of “Hymn to the Fallen,” part of the movie score from “Saving Private Ryan.”

The next band concert is 8 p.m. Aug. 4. The Terre Haute Community Band is composed of professional and amateur musicians from various communities around the Wabash Valley. The principal conductor of the band is Yvonne Newlin. She is director of music at Lincoln Trail College in Robinson, Ill.

The Terre Haute Community Band gratefully acknowledges the grants from the Wabash Valley Community Foundation and the city of Terre Haute in presenting and implementing their concert schedule. All concerts are sponsored by the Terre Haute Parks and Recreation Department.
