Composer Michael Sweeney, of Milwaukee, warms up on the tin whistle in between songs during the Woodstock City Band performance celebrating it's 130th year of existence. Sweeney composed and directed “Spring City Overture,” an overture written in part like a march, to commemorate the band’s longstanding history. The McHenry County Community Foundation awarded $4000 to the city of Woodstock to commission Sweeney's composure. Kyle Grillot - kgrillot@shawmedia.com
