PERHAM — A concert band of over 40 players will be performing in Perham this week. The Red River Valley Veterans Band, which is based out of Fargo, honors all veterans at their concerts with patriotic music, music recognizable to veterans, and songs for all branches of the military.

Performers in the band span multiple generations, with musicians ranging in age from 18 to 80 years old. Many of the performers are veterans themselves. Their mission is to promote patriotism through music, and honoring veterans is their passion.

"A lot of (veterans) came back and were not recognized or thanked," said Cynthia Arnhold with the Red River Valley Veterans Band. "So this really promotes that (gratitude)."

The band rehearses together every Thursday night, and they perform concerts from September through early June.

There will be two Perham concerts on the evening of Thursday, April 21: At Perham Living at 7 p.m. and at the Perham Center for the Arts at 8:15 p.m.
