PLEASE NOTE: Due to weather conditions, the July 4th concert was moved to the Mercer High School Auditorium. Also, for the same reasons, the Buhl Park concert was held at the Sharon High School Auditorium. Poor lighting conditions at Mercer caused most of the digital images taken there to be unusable. However, more pictures were taken at Sharon that were acceptable. The soloists and featured artists were the same for both concerts.
