The public is invited to a free concert at the Coleman Theatre with a chance to be on television.

The concert of Johnnie High's Country Music Review will begin at 7 p.m. Monday at the Coleman Theatre.

The music will include "rock 'n roll, country and even a little jazz and swing mixed in," said Wayne Reed, Country Music Revue's male vocalist of the year and performer with the review.

Because admission is free, tickets are not required. The public will be welcomed on a first come, first served basis.

The concert will be recorded as part of an episode of "Rhythms of the Road," a new 13-part HDTV music and travel series.

The concept of high definition (HD) is something people have become exposed to if only through TV commericals warning a "translator" will be needed for old television sets after the 2009 deadline when all television programs will be broadcast in high definition.

It is being produced by Brian Greene, creator of Greene HD Productions of Arlington, Texas, who began producting programs for the HD market in 1995.

The series "Rhythms of the Road" will travel America's "Mother Road," Route 66.

Filming of the series will begin with the concert at the Coleman Theatre.

Other locations where a free concert will be given and used in the series include Union Station in St. Louis, Mo.; Munger Moss Motel in Lebanon, Mo.; Big Texan in Amarillo, Texas; Mid-Point Cafe in Adrain, Texas, concluding on Oct. 15 at La Posada Hotel in Winslow, Ariz.

In addition to the music, the program will discover the unique look, history, food and folklore of each town.

The goal is to have the series ready for broadcast in spring 2009.
