July 14--Some of north Alabama's most talented young musicians will perform tonight at Concerts by the River.

The weekly concert series at Rhodes Ferry Park will begin at 6 p.m. with the Decatur Youth Symphony's chamber ensemble and continue at 7 p.m. with the Madison Community Band.

Led by Jacob Frank, the chamber ensemble consists of the symphony's most advanced string players.

Formed in 1993, the Madison Community Band performs big band songs, show tunes and marches. Musicians from Morgan, Limestone and Madison counties participate in the group.

Bring a blanket, lawn chair and, perhaps, a handheld fan to tonight's Concerts by the River.
