It was a celebration of music and the beginning of summer on Saturday as student musicians from Cedaredge High School and Cedaredge Middle School presented a Concert in the Park. It was a chance for band parents to hold a fund raiser for students of bandmaster Michael Bowles. Performances by the CMS Beginning Band, CMS Advanced Band, CMS Choir, Cedaredge Jazz Band, CHS Show Choir, CHS Concert Choir, and the CHS Concert Band. On display for the event were the more than half dozen state awards that local student musicians have earned this year, including the 2011 Class 1-A State Championship trophy.
