HUNTLEY – Huntley High School band director Nick Konwerski and Sun City Concert Band director Donna Bressler will present a “Festival of Music” concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Performing Arts Center at Huntley High School, 13719 Harmony Road.

The sixth annual concert event will feature musical selections not previously performed by the combined bands.

The event is free, but donations will be accepted at the door to benefit the Huntley High School band program.

Donations from last year’s event totaled $1,079, to which the Sun City Band added $1,000 for a total of $2,079.

Scholarships for $500 each were then presented to three members of the Huntley High School band program, Zoe Detlaf, Pierce Cordle and Charlotte Skala.

Scholarship winners for 2013 will be announced Tuesday at the “Festival of Music” concert.
