Admission is free. Audience members are encouraged to bring folding chairs to the park. Donations to the Ephrata Concert Band Committee will be accepted.

In the event of extreme weather, the concert will be moved several blocks away, inside the Ephrata Recreation Center at 130 South Academy Drive.

The band will perform a different program of tunes from diverse musical genres each Sunday evening through July 23.
