Sycamore park starts summer concerts
SYCAMORE – Garage Orchestra will make its first appearance at the Sycamore Park District’s Summer Concert Series on Thursday, July 11.
“They were unbelievable last year. They performed in our battle of the bands contest,” said Bart Desch, superintendent of recreation for the park district. “They have 50 to 70 high school and junior high students, and they use this as a way to practice during the summertime.”
Garage Orchestra started in 2008 when Brad and Amanda Nelson of Sycamore came up with the idea of a rock orchestra made up of school-aged musicians jamming on their violins, cellos and drums. The band is made of musicians from Dundee, DeKalb, Sycamore and Rochelle. Brad Nelson suggested that the band rehearse in the couple’s DeKalb garage.
