The Fond du Lac Symphonic Band, under the direction of Ray Wifler and Jill Wagner, will present selections from "The Musical Stage" on Wednesday, July 24, beginning at 7:15 p.m. The event is the sixth in the summer-long Buttermilk Festival, which is celebrating its 25th season of music at Buttermilk Creek Park in Fond du Lac.

Tiana Sorensen, soprano, and Paul Thomspon, tenor, will sing selections from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, including Summertime, It Ain't Necessarily So, A Woman is a Sometime Thing, I Love You Porgy, and Bess You Is My Woman Now.

Brasilian Mood will feature Lisa Pankratz on alto saxophone. The band will perform the Overture to Bernstein's Candide, themes from Wagner's Tannhauser, a medley from the musical Wicked, and The Best of Carole King.

The Symphonic Band's Buttermilk Creek Park concerts are sponsored by the City of Fond du Lac, along with free-will offerings that are received during each concert.

Next on the music calendar will be the gala Buttermilk Festival 25th Anniversary concert on Aug. 7.

The band will also perform in Oakfield on Aug. 1.
