SLCC Summer Spirit Band July performances

In case you missed Salt Lake Community College's Summer Spirit Band performances earlier this summer, there's still time to see, hear and support them later this month.

Upcoming performances include: July 18, 9 a.m., Draper Days Parade; July 20, 6 p.m., Days of '47 Float Preview Party; July 23, 6 p.m., Bountiful Handcart Days Parade; and July 24, 9 a.m., KSL Days of '47 Parade in Salt Lake City.

Not your typical military-precision marching band, Summer Spirit is fun-focused, playing fan favorites that span several decades and genres. Band Director Craig Ferrin continues the annual tradition of taking his group into neighborhoods around SLCC’s South City Campus for impromptu concerts as a means of preparation for the big Days of '47 Parade and engaging with the community. Previous performaces were held in Lehi, Taylorsville, Riverton, Murray, West Jordan and Sandy.
