The Wadena Area Community Band, under the direction of John Lindlief, will be presenting its annual spring concert in honor of Liz Erickson and in memory of Dr. Warren Hartman. Both had been members of the band since its reorganization nearly 30 years ago. Erickson retired from the band this year while Hartman passed away last month.

The free concert will be in the Wadena Memorial Auditorium on Sunday, March 20 at 2:30 p.m. Music to suit many tastes will be performed, including light classical, a hymn tune, marches and show tunes. To honor Hartman's love of jazz and Dixieland, "When the Saints Go Marching In" will also be presented.

Wadena Area Community Band members represent the Bertha, Eagle Bend, Henning, Long Prairie, Park Rapids, Perham, Staples, Verndale and Wadena communities.
