To the University City Summer Band, Mr. Tom Poshak, Director

My compliments to the dedicated volunteer musicians and Director Tom Poshak who perform in the University City Summer Band. Little did I know what talent and enjoyment could be found in The Loop during the summer! The outside venue lends itself well by contributing to the community atmosphere. While performing outdoors, the band demonstrates a superb blending of rich tones and sounds.

What appeals to me is the wide variety of musical selections that can be enjoyed by the diverse audience. Mr. Poshak encourages audience participation through clapping along with the music and at times even singing along with the band and Mr. Chuck Lockyear, who also does an outstanding job of introduction each week. I especially enjoy the inclusion of children with their active participation directing the band during the finale. Who knows, perhaps some day they will be our next generation of musicians entertaining us!

Again, my compliments and my thanks to all of you who make Tuesday evenings in June and July a "toe tapping, hand clapping", musical evening of entertainment.

Please join us in thanking our patrons by supporting their businesses!
