MUNCIE, IN — America’s Hometown Band Big Band musicians return to the Ball State University Arts Terrace Quadruple for 2022. This band is ready to entertain their audiences with musical gems that showcase that special Swing Sound. Always a crowd favorite, the show is scheduled for Thursday night, July 28, starting at 7 p.m. Free entry and open to all.

The leader of the group is professional trumpeter Larry McWilliams, founder of the BSU Jazz Program and professor emeritus of music. This outdoor setting under shady trees offers plenty of room for lawn chairs, blankets, picnics and dancing – bring your friends and family.

The wide-open BSU Quadrangle Green is located between Riverside and University Avenues at 2000 West, south of the Fine Arts Building. Free parking is available just east of the quad in the McKinley parking structure along the quad loop and street parking along the university opposite the student center; as well as the lots just west of Lucina Hall and south of the Student Center, accessible from University Ave.

The 501c3 non-profit group known as “America’s Hometown Band” is the municipal band of Muncie, founded in 1988 by Roger McConnell and Dr. Philip Cooley. AHB depends on donations from numerous individuals and public-spirited groups to maintain the music each year. Individual donations are always welcome at any concert; donations can also be made through the AHB website www.amhometownband.org, or the Facebook page – America’s Hometown Band.
