An “Armed Forces Salute” in Willmar

Getting an early start on the Memorial Day weekend, brass musicians from the Minnesota Orchestra shared an evening performance with members of the Willmar-area VFW Post 1639 on Wednesday.


The ensemble performed works including Mouret’s Rondeau, “America the Beautiful” and the “Armed Forces Salute” to a gathered crowd of veterans and community members. “I’m going to go home and get out my trumpet,” declared one young audience member.

Activities continue throughout the week and culminate with two public performances in Willmar this weekend.
