St. Charles Big Band honors
arranger Richard Wargin, Sr.

The St. Charles Big Band honored its longtime arranger and trumpet player, the late Richard Wargin Sr., with a concert of Wargin's arrangements this past Sunday at Frontier Park in St. Charles. The Suburban Journals' Steve Pokin wrote a feature story here about the band and Wargin, who passed away at age 80 in February from complications of pneumonia.

The St. Charles Big Band, an offshoot of the St. Charles Municipal Band, has three more Sunday night concerts scheduled this year at Frontier Park, on July 11, August 8 and September 5. All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public.
