Come one, come all to the American Legion Band of Bethlehem's circus music concert 3 p.m. Sunday, March 23, at Advent Moravian Church in Bethlehem.
George Fennell directs the band in "The Greatest Concert On Earth" featuring musical selections heard at the circus including "Barnum and Bailey's Favorite," a circus march written in 1913 by Karl King for that circus.
There will be circus-related activities for kids, and families can enjoy refreshments in the church hall at 3730 Jacksonville Road after the performance.
The concert is the first of 18 in the band's 69th concert season. The band also is performing at veterans observances for American Legion Post 379 in Bethlehem.
Tickets are $10 for adults, available at the door. Seniors are $5, children are free.
