Ninety-four seasons of saxophones, winds and trombones later, the Charlottesville Municipal Band continues to bring joy to the community. The group of more than 90 men and women has grown exponentially from it inception in 1922, but maintains its commitment to sharing its love of music with others. Fresh off its annual July 4 concert at Monticello’s naturalization ceremony, the Muni players are joined by the U.S. Army Band for a day-after show.

Tuesday 7/5. Free, 7:30pm. Martin Luther King Performing Arts Center at Charlottesville High School, 1400 Melbourne Ave. 295-9850.
