The Moscow Arts Department Entertainment in the Park series will end Thursday after a performance from the Moscow Arts Commission (MAC) band.
The series, which began in June, has provided free entertainment and music on Thursday nights and is aimed at pleasing families. The shows take place at East City Park in Moscow and have included a Magician, a Yo-Yo expert, a circus act and Smokey the Bear.
The MAC band, commissioned by the Moscow Arts Department, has played themed music after each performer’s act.
“The MAC band plays a variety of music styles from big band favorites to classic hits. The MAC band also plays for the Moscow Art Walk every year,” said D.J. Scallorn, arts assistant for the Moscow Arts Department.
Scallorn said the MAC band is comprised of about 40 to 50 individuals. As part of their summer series, the band has set rehearsals for each performance during the summer.
“The MAC band is open to the public. Rehearsals are held at the University of Idaho Hampton School of music room 216,” Scallorn said.
The final rehearsal will be held July 11 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
