Milford Concert Band Presents “A Musical Salute to Our Veterans”

The event will be held at Milford City Hall November 6th

A special musical program to honor area veterans will take place at Milford City Hall on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 3:30 p.m.

The Milford Concert Band, under the direction of city resident Steven L. Saunders, will present “A Musical Salute to Our Veterans” in conjunction with the City of Milford Office of the Mayor.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. for people who want to attend the concert following the city’s annual Veteran’s Day Parade. It’s also an ideal venue for people who may not be able to stand for an extended period of time to watch the parade, yet still want to honor our veterans.

Several members of the Milford Concert Band are especially looking forward to the event, as they have served the country in the military. MCB veterans include:

· Milford baritone player Jim Winkelman, who served in the U.S. Navy from 1951 to 1953, stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri during the Korean War;

· Milford Baritone player Dick Platt, who served in the 7th Fleet of the U.S. Navy from 1955 to 1959 in the years between the Korean and Viet Nam Wars;

· Monroe saxophonist Dr. Art Salman, who served as a clinical psychologist in the U.S. Air Force from 1963 to 1966 at the start of the Vietnam War; and

· Stratford trumpeter Ernie Dunn, who served as a sonar operator in the U.S. Navy from 1950 to 1954 during the Korean War.

The concert is free and open to the public. Milford City Hall is located at 110 River St., across from the Parsons Government Complex. For more information, call (203) 260-6625.

The Milford Concert Band is the official community band for the City of Milford.
