Red River Valley Veterans Band performs April 30 at Vets Museum

A free concert by the Red River Valley Veterans Band will be April 30.

The Red River Valley Veterans Concert Band returns to Perham for a concert on Thursday, April 30 at the ITOW Veterans Museum. The concert, which is free and open to the public, is again being sponsored by the Perham Lions.

Last year's concert was held at Mulligan's.

This year, the band will perform in the main gallery of the ITOW Veterans Museum. The concert begins at 8:15, immediately following a performance at the nursing home.

All the members of the Red River Valley Veterans Concert Band are volunteers. About half are military veterans or are currently serving in the National Guard. While patriotic music is included in every performance, the band's music is not limited to marches and anthems. The band currently schedules about 40 concerts per year, combining their public performance with one at area nursing homes. The 8:15 concert is free and open to the public.
