Rick Buechler holds his granddaughters Violet Levato, 2, and Lilly Levato, 4, during the Woodstock City Band's debut performance celebrating it's 130th year of existence. Michael 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.
