Hot Notes, Cool Nights concert Monday kept the rain away

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Under threatening skies, Monday night’s Hot Notes, Cool Nights concert at Riverton City Park featured the Central Wyoming College Community Concert Band in a Night at the Opera. With an appreciative crowd on hand, the rain stayed away. Headline performer Monday night was the Fremont Symphony Orchestra that played selections as varied as Beethoven to Santana and ended the evening with a rousing rendition of the Stars and Stripes Forever. Five 10-year-old members of the Symphony’s Imperial Youth Orchestra joined the main orchestra for the concert.
