MT MORRIS – This season's free Mt. Morris Jamboree concert series will not happen, thanks to COVID-19, event organizer Larry Ubben said. 

“We had hoped for enough improvement with the COVID-19 pandemic to safely allow the presentation of a few concerts by summer's end, but we see that is not the case,” Ubben said.

“We are rescheduling all of the bands we had set for this year to 2021, including classic/oldies rock 'n' roll groups ShInDiG! on July 2 and Chicago Tribute Anthology on Aug. 20.”

The jamboree did receive a $3,00 Community Foundation of Northern Illinois grant, which will be applied to next summer's series, Ubben said.
