Long-Time Rockford Concert Band Announcer Retires

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A man who's been welcoming concert-goers to Sinnissippi Park every summer for since the 1960's is putting down his microphone.

Roger Ellis' final performance with the Rockford Concert Band was Tuesday night at the Park District's Music in the Park Series. He's a retired music teacher who's been a part of the concert band for nearly four decades. He's served as conductor and most recently as the group's announcer.
