To the editor:
On Monday evening, June 9, at 7 p.m. in German Park the Original German Band of New Ulm will be starting their 30th season. The founders of the band will be recognized during this concert and their dedication and contributions to preserving the German music, including our New Ulm-style German music was and is a labor of love.
The late Curt Iverson and the late LeRoy "Slivers" Dewanz re-arranged the sheet music received from bands from Germany and Austria who performed at Heritagefests and also included special arrangements to salute famous New Ulm bands of the past. Rehearsals began in January of 1985 and the earliest concerts were at the Schell Brewery outdoor stage and at the 1985 Heritagefest.
We invite all to listen to this great music at this free concert sponsored by the New Ulm Park & Recreation Commission and KNUJ.
See you Monday evening...
