Sister-city visitors

Pleasanton's sister-city delegation from Tulancingo, Mexico, arrives late Sept. 21 for five days packed with activities. The Pleasanton Community Concert Band will perform a special program, "Visiting American Music," for the Pleasanton Tulancingo Sister City Association at 7 p.m. Thursday at the newly dedicated Firehouse Arts Center, 4444 Railroad Ave. in downtown Pleasanton.

"We are honored to be among the first to perform at the new Firehouse Arts Center and to entertain our friends from Tulancingo," said Conductor Bob Williams.

The hour-long concert will feature American pieces, including two favorites of Mexican origin, selections from "Carousel" and "Oklahoma," melodies of Glenn Miller, songs by Cole Porter, and marches by John Philip Sousa.

To attend, call president Alice Pryor at 462-5786 by Sept. 15.
