Concert at the Cabin is set for 5 to 7:30 p.m., Sept. 9, at the Nature Center, 1111 E. Schaumburg Road. The Spring Valley Community Concert Band will perform at 6 p.m. under the shelter on the wooded grounds of Merkle Cabin. Picnic food and beverages will be available for purchase or bring your own food, lawn chairs and a blanket. Picnic tables will be available.
“Communities across the U.S. have concert bands like ours,” said Dave Brooks, manager of conservation services. “Our band puts on a great performance of traditional concert band music that people of all ages enjoy.”
