Hot Notes, Cool Nights in the Park

Fremont County’s own summer community concert series, featuring the CWC Community Band and a featured guest artist returns on June 28th at the Riverton City Park.

This year the concert series will be directed by Jeremy Cochran the new music instructor at CWC.

“I’m excited to be taking over as music director of the Hot Notes/Cool Nites Community Band. Outdoor performances for a family audience have been a part of the American Concert Band tradition since before the Civil War, and just like the great bands of the past, we’ll be performing a mix of light classical, patriotic, and popular music that goes just right with a lawn-chair and an ice-cream cone. If there are people out there who have been itching to dig their old band instrument out of the closet, this is just the kind of fun, low-key music to get back into it with,” stated Jeremy. “A lot of the work of putting on a series like this has nothing to do with music. Kelly Dehnert, Sean Francis, the volunteer members of the HNCN board, and our sponsors do a great job of taking care of the business and logistics side of things. Several folks on this team have been putting in the effort for a lot of years now. I so appreciate that they’ve kept this going and that I get to join with them in bringing fun outdoor music experiences to families in our area.”
