The Under the Baton:  Music at Old Cedar Point chronicles the growth of Cedar Point Amusement Park through the rise and popularity of the concert band music, which was a major form of entertainment at the park in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  The concept for the film was developed from the local history stories that are being told through the Sandusky Library's award winning blog "Sandusky History", and from the fascinating musical scores, biographies, band histories, and musician histories that are found in the Library Archives.
