With the holiday season approaching, the Grant County Community Concert Association and the American Legion Post 18 are bringing back the 1st Armored Division Band for a festive holiday concert. According to their website, “The 1st Armored Division “Old Ironsides” Band traces its heritage from 1943, when it was activated in the early days of World War II. To this band, however, music was often a sideline as division bands were used as infantry units during World War II.” The “showpiece” of the 1st Armored Division performs throughout the Fort Bliss area in military ceremonies as well as supporting a variety of community relations and international activities. The concert will be held Thursday December 15th at 7:00 PM in the WNMU Fine Arts Theater.  This concert is free and open to the public.
