The June 28 concert is part of Huntsville’s Armed Forces Week celebrations featuring the MCoE Band from Fort Benning, Ga. The evening will end with a downtown fireworks display.

“The arts and entertainment sector has been severely challenged over the past year, and the return of Concerts in the Park and other great arts programming is critical to the continued success of our local arts and entertainment scene,” said Allison Dillon-Jauken, executive director of Arts Huntsville. “We encourage area residents and visitors to support the 2021 Concert series and all of the summer arts events across the area.”
