The Gateway Concert Band will present “Name Those Tunes XI” at 7 p.m. Monday at Rotary Centennial Park, on the corner of Griffin Avenue and Railroad Street.

For the 11th year, the band will challenge the audience to name the numerous tunes included in medleys of songs for all age groups. The program will also feature Jim Scherr, playing a cornet solo with the band.

For those who can not make Monday’s performance, the same program will be presented at 7 p.m. June 29 at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Sumner.

These programs are made possible in part by grants from the city of Enumclaw, 4Culture of King County and the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe.

There is no admission charge, but a donation will be collected.

Bring a chair or blanket to sit. If the weather is too wet or cold, the program will be moved to the auditorium at Enumclaw High School. For information, call 360-825-5369 or visit www.gatewayconcertband.org.

Formed in March of 1996, it has presented more than 150 performances in its 12-year tenure; all of the band’s concerts have been free of charge.
