The Alpena area is fortunate to have organizers, sponsors, and volunteers who make it possible to offer the Summer Concerts in the Park series each year. This summer's line-up of concerts was another big success.
I was particularly impressed by last Saturday's final concert of the season. The group known as KGB skillfully performed numerous Motown and related favorites. But beyond the masterful musicianship, terrific song choices, and skillful dancing, KGB from Toledo captivated the crowd for three full hours with their warmth, enthusiasm, good humor, and caring spirit.
Especially impressive was how they expressed their love for people as well as for performing by connecting directly with members of the audience by spending a good part of the evening among them while singing. They reached out to everyone, including children, whom they invited to the stage for the final numbers.
Thanks to the Convention and Visitors Bureau, sponsors, and volunteers for another special summer music series.
