The UCO Summer Band has been a popular event on the UCO campus for 69 years, being one of UCO’s longest running traditions.
The concert this year is set for Thursday, June 27th at 7:30 pm, featuring a mixture of light classics, marches and patriotic music. The one hour concert will include a range of traditional “concert in the park music” that will appeal to all. The band numbers 88 with members from area high schools, college students, and community members. Following the concert the audience will be treated to free watermelon and ice cream.
Summer Band Mission Statement The Summer Band is a joint project of Libertyfest and the UCO School of Music to provide a quality band experience for area high school, college, and community members. The weekly rehearsals of this volunteer group provide a musical outlet for band members during the summer. Rehearsals culminate with a public performance of patriotic selections, marches and popular medleys in the style of an old fashioned concert in the park.
