L’Harmonie Racine continues its 99th season of free concerts on Sunday (August 15) at Zoo Racine.

The concert starts at 7 p.m.

This is the group’s season finale and will include the “Summer Sweepstakes Spectacular”. Members of the public will earn gift certificates throughout the program. The names of the winners are drawn and Sunday evening spectators can still participate in the draw.

Bass-baritone Greg Berg is the guest singer artist. In addition, band members Paul Taylor and Nancy Quist are the star soloists.

Mark Eichner, musical director of the group since 2002, will lead the program.

Don Rosen, professional radio host for 49 years, is the master of ceremonies.

The official Town of Racine Marching Band – which includes several Kenosha members – will perform their 1,501st free concert.

Works on display include a postcard from French composer Emmanuel Chabrier’s travels titled “España Rhapsody” and Franz von Suppé’s overture to the comic operetta “Jolly Robbers”.

Berg, director of fine arts on WGTD radio and music teacher at Carthage College, will perform an aria from Verdi’s “Simon Bocanegra” and “God bless you and keep you”.
