The swing-style Shriners’ band of the Syria Temple is coming to the Lions Bandshell at Renziehausen Park at 6 p.m. Sunday (Sept. 18), a spokesperson said.
The concert is being presented by the Carnegie Library of McKeesport and the McKeesport Music Club.
The first all-Shriner band in North America, the Shriners Band of Pittsburgh is affiliated with the Syria Temple Shriners, headquartered in Cheswick. The band traces its history back more than 100 years and regularly plays concerts throughout the mid-Atlantic states to raise money for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
The band’s repertoire includes music from the classics, pops and familiar marches.
Vincent D’Alesio, library director, said the library will be selling raffle tickets and lottery calendars and will have a 50/50 drawing during the show.
