The Penn-Trafford Community Band and its jazz band, the Jazz Warriors, will hold a fundraising concert for The Lamp Theatre in downtown Irwin with a performance there on Sunday.

The recently restored theater at 222 Main St. has become one of the best concert venues in the area, said Ron Rometo of Penn Township, P-T Community Band manager and founder.

The concert, which will run from 2 to 4 p.m., will feature a variety of music from the P-T Community Band, including marches, patriotic tunes, inspirational music, television and movie themes and songs from the Big Band Era, Rometo said.

The newly formed Jazz Warriors, consisting of mainly of community band members, will entertain the crowd with popular jazz and dance numbers, such as “Satin Doll,” “Begin the Beguine,” “Pennsylvania 6-5000,” “Blues on the Night” and other jazz and dance favorites, Rometo said.

Tickets are $6 per adult and $5 for students and senior citizens and are available by calling 724-367-4000 or at www.Lamptheatre. Tickets will be sold at the door.

For more information, contact Rometo at 724-309-2000.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
