MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The city of Montgomery's concert band, The Capitol Sounds, is preparing for its next big event and you're invited!

The concert is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7th at 7 p.m. at Saint James United Methodist Church on Vaughn Road in Montgomery.

The band will perform music from legendary Hollywood composer John Williams, including "Superman March" and "Olympic Fanfare and Theme." (The 2016 Summer Olympic Games will be held this August in Brazil.)
