The temperatures this week are expected to crescendo, so area musicians will be marching their night of instrumental fun to a location with air conditioning.

The Lake Area Community Orchestra has moved tonight's concert to First Baptist Church of Eldon, 209 S. Aurora St. The free concert, which is part of the orchestra's nine-part series, is set to begin at 7 p.m. today.

The concert was originally scheduled to be at Eldon Air Park, but was moved inside due to a heat advisory.

On June 21, the orchestra will play at another lake church. The 7 p.m. performance will be at West Lake Christian Church, Laurie, 936 Route O.

The 35-piece orchestra will play a variety of music and a number of different marches such as "El Capitan" and "Stars and Stripes Forever."

They will also play more classical songs, including "Prelude, Siciliano and Rondo" and music from "West Side Story." Those playing the flutes will be highlighted while performing "Those Fabulous Flutes."

Gene Moll, publicity director and trumpet player, said the crowds for the concerts have varied each year.

"We have crowds roughly around 100 people or so," he said. "Sometimes more."

A few weeks after the West Lake Christian Church concert, the band will perform July 19 at First Christian Church on East Capitol Avenue in Jefferson City.
