A patriotic and musical start to the Fourth of July weekend is promised by the U.S. Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus. They’re planning a free outdoor performance at Veterans Park Field on the evening of Saturday, July 1, starting at 7 p.m. The concert is being hosted by American Legion Post 78.
“They’re coming directly from Washington. They’re on their way to perform with the Boston Pops at their traditional Fourth of July concert,” said Jack Herr, who for years has organized concerts in Ridgefield by various U.S. military bands, including previous concerts by the 90-member Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus.
