Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85004, located in downtown. Music will include selections from the hit musical, Encanto, the television show, Family Guy, the Looney Tunes soundtrack, as well as classic artists such as Glenn Miller.
"Our performances always take us to all kinds of unexpected places," said Scott Helms, Desert Overture Band Director. "This concert will be no different and highly entertaining."
