Director Stephanie Cottrell leads the 6th & 7th grade bands through a practice
at the city park this morning (May 6th).
concert in the park may seem like a new idea, but it is actually something that

the 1912 Collinsville band stand above, but suspect it was in the city park
which was likely east of town at that time. -- Ted Wright

the 6th & 7th grade bands followed by the High School Band.
bands did not have the full attention of everyone in the park, as many of the
smaller kids enjoyed playing in or near the creek.
