Composer Michael Sweeney, of Milwaukee, performs a solo on the tin whistle during the Woodstock City Band performance celebrating it's 130th year of existence. Sweeney composed and directed “Spring City Overture,” an overture written in part like a march, to commemorate the band’s longstanding history. The McHenry County Community Foundation awarded $4000 to the city of Woodstock to commission Sweeney's composure.
