Jun 30, 2012 - From staff reports
The Central Wyoming College summer band performs patriotic and American classics at its first Hot Notes Cool Nights concert Monday, July 2, at Riverton City Park.
The concerts are scheduled every Monday through Aug. 6, alternating between the city parks in Lander and Riverton. The featured artist for the first concert is pianist, composer and arranger Tom Amend of Riverton who will bring along "company" to entertain the audience. Amend is a Riverton High School student.
The concert starts at 7 p.m. Under the direction of Robert Hussa, the band will perform music to celebrate Independence Day.
The band's theme remains the same for the July 9 concert in Lander's City Park though the guest artists will be Peter Queal and Friends. Queal is a Laramie-based jazz guitarist and vocalist who incorporates a multitude of musical styles into his work.
In the event of rain, the Riverton concerts will be moved to the Robert A. Peck Arts Center Gallery. In Lander, the alternate location has not been announced.
