CENTENNIAL, Colo. (2/10/12) – The Colorado National Guard’s own, the 101st Army Band, will perform a free, public concert on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m.

The annual “Pipes and Stripes” concert will be held at the Paramount Theater in downtown Denver.

The Soldiers will once again join Jim Calm and Bob Castle of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American Theater Organ Society, who will play the theater's twin Wurlitzer organs with the band. Both organists will also be featured as soloists.

The concert will feature the 101st Army Band's concert ensemble, as well as performances by the Rough Riders, dixieland band, and the band's brass quintet. The concert returns to the Paramount Theater, where it has routinely drawn large crowds from around the state. Admission is free of charge, and tickets will not be required for admission.

The 101st Army Band was first formed in 1937 and consists of 40 Citizen-Soldiers of the Colorado Army National Guard whose mission is to be musical ambassadors and representatives for the citizens, veterans, and service members of Colorado.

FOR ASSIGNMENT EDITORS: This will be a free, public concert. For further information or to schedule an interview, contact Staff Sgt. James Stewart at 720-847-8615 or info@101starmyband.com.
