Denver police officer Celena Hollis, who was killed at last week's City Park jazz concert while trying to break up a fight, will be honored at this Sunday's concert. A silent vigil is scheduled for 5 p.m. on the west side of Ferril Lake; the concert will begin at 6 p.m., and Lionel Young and his band will play Hollis's favorite songs.
