The 566th Air Force Concert Band

A large crowd enjoyed the Friday evening "America The Beautiful Concert" featuring a 40- piece member Air Force Concert Band. Selections included many Americana songs, pieces from the musicals "Wicked" and "Les Miserables" and the American National Anthem. One of the tuba players sang a few wonderful solos with his band. People carried in their lawn chairs and blankets to sit on the grassy area surrounding the bandshell.



The Eagan Rotary Band Shell was given several years ago almost entirely as a gift from the Eagan Rotary Club to the city of Eagan.

  4. That's nice. Band moosic is nice. The Rotary is nice. The bandshell is nice. Eagan is nice.

    In response, however, to Allison's comment about the new prez of ze Rotary singing: do you know the sound of vehicle brakes when they're wearing out?

    Not nice.

    Have a moosical day!

  5. But, Jacob, do you not know that Safe Leif was a member of the SP Concert Choir in high school? Yes indeed, an honor and a distinction it is.

  6. Ich bin es wieder... Vielen Dank für Deine schnelle Antwort. Ich bin froh das ich Dir in Deutsch schreiben kann das macht es einfacher für mich. Du hast geschrieben Du warst in Paderborn und Konstanz ...dann hast Du ja schon ein wenig von Deutschland kennen gelernt. Warst Du schon einmal in Berlin? Ich war auch schon einige Male in den USA (Miami, LasVegas e.t.c.). Und immer wenn ich mich mit Amerikanern unterhalten habe ...hatten sie eine Geschichte über Deutschland zu erzählen. Entweder sie haben Verwandte oder Bekannte in Deutschland oder haben schon einmal dort gearbeitet so wie Du. Ist schon witzig....jeder hat eine Geschichte zu erzählen. Ich war noch nie in Minnesota ...vielleicht sollte ich mir das auch mal anschauen.

    Ok, genug Deutsch für heute:-)
    Bis bald...Grace
