Every Tuesday night for seven weeks in midsummer, Jenny Flory heads over to the Brodhead High School band room, joining 44 other musicians readying for the culmination of their 90-minute rehearsals: a concert at Twilight in the Park. Flory has been a member of the Brodhead Community Band since its inception eight years ago.

“My reasons for joining the group were to essentially dust off the chops and play my flute again.
