The Two Harbors City Band, established in 1897, will begin its summer concerts Thursday, June 20. All concerts are in the Paul Gauche Memorial Band Shell at Thomas Owens Park, at the corner of Third Avenue and Waterfront Drive in downtown Two Harbors.

Concert dates are June 20 and 27; July 4, 11, 13, 18 and 25; and Aug. 1, 9 and 15. Concerts are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. except the Saturday, July 13, concert at 11 a.m. during Heritage Days.

The band is seeking guest conductors for one musical march as a fundraiser for the construction of its new performing arts center. For a $100 donation to the Friends of the Band Shell Park, a nonprofit committee, donors will have the opportunity to direct the band in one musical march in the current band shell. No experience in directing is necessary; no rehearsals are necessary.

Those interested in guest conducting should contact band member Larry Saur at
