... stage when the Peoria Municipal Band took the stage for their Sunday evening performance. Everyone came to their feet and the gentleman removed their hats and caps as the band began to play the Star Spangled Banner. After finishing everyone settled in and waited for the conductor to explain what the evening was about to bring and how the musical flavor would enlighten the crowd. Dr. Roman is the band director and had picked the evening's lineup of music.
