The Nichols Hills Band will launch its summer concert series with a 7 p.m. Thursday performance at the Kite Park gazebo, 1500 Camden Way.

The 25-piece brass, woodwind and percussion band is entering its 32nd season. The band also will perform concerts at 7 p.m. on July 17 and Aug. 21 and will play for the annual Nichols Hills Independence Day parade at 8 a.m. July 4, also in Kite Park.

Mike Forcina, a former Oklahoma City middle school and high school band director, returns for a second season as director. Forcina said the repertoire this season again will be drawn from memorable Broadway pieces, jazz, pop and traditional marches.

Admission to all Nichols Hills Band concerts is free. Bottled water will be sold to help the band pay for music and equipment.

Forcina said the band is made up of volunteer, experienced adult musicians from the Oklahoma City metro area and Norman.

“Come out and enjoy some nostalgic Americana,” Forcina said. “Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy an evening of entertaining music.”
