Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - The Lake Charles Community Band Catch-a-Concert series began Monday night.

The theme for this summer’s series is Americana. The group is made up of volunteers from Southwest Louisiana and the Golden Triangle of Southeast Texas.

Monday night’s performance featured music from Pirates of the Caribbean, Tijuana Brass and more.

The free-to-the-public concert series starts at 6:30 p.m. each Monday in June on the second floor of the Lake Charles Civic Center.

Community Band member Oliver Schrumpf is looking forward to the chance to get out and play with his fellow band members.

“Our band is made up entirely of volunteers, so we have professionals, housewives, operators at the plants,” Schrumpf said. “We just have a wide variety of people.”

Like many other organizations, the Community Band is returning from a break forced by COVID-19.

“It’s great that we’re going to get a chance to get back together and play music,” Schrumpf said. “Music is a relief for all of us, and it’s fun.”
