MOUND CITY – A group of professional musicians will be performing at the Mound City amphitheater on Saturday, June 29, beginning at 1 p.m.

The U.S. Army Band brass quintet out of Fort Riley will play a one-hour set of music sponsored by the Mound City United Methodist Church. The concert is free and area veterans are especially invited to attend the event, where they will be recognized for their service.

Kerry Morrell of Mound City, who worked at Fort Riley for a couple years, helped organize the event. She suggested that people who plan on attending bring lawn chairs.

“The 1st Infantry Division Band’s 'Victory Brass Quintet' is one of the premier music ensembles of the 1st Infantry Division," said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Brian Dorgan, who is bandmaster and commander of the 1st Infantry Division Band at Fort Riley. "They have performed in communities, schools, and universities all over Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma, as well as distinguished ceremonies in Washington D.C. to dedicate a monument to 'Big Red One' Soldiers who served in Desert Storm.

"These soldier-musicians are true masters of their craft and a great representation of the excellence displayed across the entire 1st Infantry Division and the U.S. Army. It is our pleasure to perform a patriotic concert for members of Linn Country, their amazing veterans, and show appreciation to those communities that support the dedication and hard work of Soldiers serving today.

We especially want to thank Mound City for inviting us and hosting the event.”
