Farmington council considers outdoor concert applications

Farmington council members will on Monday consider approving two warm weather concerts in downtown Farmington’s Riley Park.

Power Middle School has applied for a permit to hold outdoor concerts June 2, 3, and 7, for 6th-8th grade orchestra and band students. Teacher Rob Wilson estimates 20-40 students will perform at each event.

The Farmington Community Band wants to bring back its annual downtown concert on July 26, with 30-40 local musicians taking part.

Both groups plan COVID safety measures that include social distancing and covering wind instruments with “bell masks”.
