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.

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.
