The Tradition Continues

For as long as I can remember, this local community band has played a summer concert in the park. This year the tradition continues. The Milwaukee American Legion Band will perform on the Chalet stage in Humboldt Park this year on Tuesday July 5. The program begins at 6:30 with a performance by the Daley Debutantes Baton and Drum Corps. The American Legion Band, under the direction of Mike VanPelt, then follows with a traditional band concert in the park. Unfortunately, I do not have any information about the program just yet. But the Legion Band concerts are always fun and full of tradition. For instance, the band always begins with a march The Champions, which was written for the band many years ago. And the band always completes the program in the same way.

I suggest you mark July 5 on your calendar for an annual event: the summer concert by the Milwaukee American Legion Band in Humboldt Park. It's been going on for as long as I can remember!
