M State bands celebrate nation's heritage, veterans Nov. 17

November 7, 2019

The community is invited to celebrate the heritage of our nation and honor veterans in American Landscape, the fall Concert Band and Jazz Band concert at Minnesota State Community and Technical College on Sunday, Nov. 17.

The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. in Legacy Hall on the Fergus Falls campus with a performance by the Concert Band. David and Laurie Strom will be guest performers, joining with the band on “Before the Sun,” a descriptive piece about a large family living on a country farm.

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the concert will include “Armed Forces Salute” as a tribute to veterans.

Refreshments will be served after the Concert Band performance, as the audience moves into Waage Theatre for the Jazz Band portion of the concert. Both bands are directed by Jim Iverson.

Ticket prices are $11 in advance and $14 at the door for adults, and $9 in advance and $10 at the door for students. Tickets are available at the M State Box Office, by calling 218.736.1600, online at mstatetickets.com or at the door.
