Allentown

The Allentown Band will give a special concert 3 p.m. April 22 at the historic Zion’s Reformed United Church of Christ, 622 W. Hamilton St., Allentown.

This unique program was created by conductor Ronald Demkee to coincide with the special exhibit “Last One In: American Ideals in Conflict with American Attitudes,” on immigration at the Liberty Bell Museum, which is housed within the church building.

The exhibit will feature editorial cartoons about each wave of immigrants to America.

The concert benefits the educational programs of the Liberty Bell Museum, which provides a hands-on educational experience for every third grade student in the Allentown School District.

There will be a cost for tickets per person which will be available at the door.

The cost includes admission to the museum the day of the concert.
