TROY — Trustees of the Troy Mayors’ Concerts, Inc. have announced the theme for the Troy Mayors’ Concert this summer.
“Lights of Broadway” will be performed on Prouty Plaza in downtown Troy at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 19, by the Dayton Philharmonic Band and Summer Chorus.
The concert is free of charge to the public.
