The Greenville Municipal Jazz Band will perform the first of its Jazz and Pops in the park concert this Sunday, July 22 at the Marling Band Shell area of the Greenville City Park. The concert will begin at 7pm and is free and open to the public.

This week the Greenville Municipal Jazz Band takes over the entertainment of the park by presenting an evening of Jazz and Pops music. Selections for the concert will include music from Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, Aretha Franklin, The Eagles and others. This Evening of Pops and Jazz Concert will also feature soloists and section features.

Our guest artist for the evening will be Mary Knapke. Mary has been a performer for many years and was prominently featured in TV and radio promos for Pepsi-Cola while she lived in North Carolina. She has been active in live theater for many years and had many leading roles. She is well known for her singing with big bands, such as the Hal Harris Orchestra, The Hauer Swing Band, Frank Neville Orchestra and Swing Era Big Band. Mary will be singing great songs with the Greenville Municipal Jazz Band such as Rt. 66, Summertime, Feelin’ Good and the great Bobby Darin hit As Long As I’m Singing.

Please plan to attend the Jazz and Pops in the Park concert this Sunday, July 22rd at 7pm at the newly rebuilt Marling Band Shell area of our beautiful city park. Bench seating is available and you can bring your own chair or blanket to sit on and enjoy the show. The concert series is a great way to spend an evening listening to music, reading a book or just creating quality time with family and friends.
