The New Albany Arts Council will host its 11th annual Concert on the Commons at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 28.

Kathy Mayhorn, president of the New Albany Arts Council, said this year's event would be at the New Albany High School library commons, off Fodor Road.

The theme is "That '70s Show" and will feature the New Albany community band and chorus, Sentimental Journey, dancer Mary Eller and pianist Scott Sadoff.

Mayhorn said patrons should not expect disco music or polyester, despite the '70s theme.

"We usually have a theme," she said. "This year's is '70s show. There was a lot of great music besides disco that was written in the '70s."

She said the event gives New Albany residents a fun way to get together in the summer.

"Eleven years ago, there was very little in the way of concerts and cultural things being put on in the community," Mayhorn said. "You're talking about an era before the McCoy center was built. This is something we started because there was a need in the community. We're really looking forward to it."
