La Crosse Concert Band performs in Riverside Park

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – The La Crosse Concert Band held its first summer performance in Riverside Park Wednesday evening.

The music brought dozens of people down to the bandshell to watch and enjoy.

After being forced to take a year off due to the pandemic, band members were excited to finally take the stage once again and play in the new bandshell for the very first time.

“Some [band members] haven’t played in a whole year, so they’re really anxious to get back and share the music with everybody,” said Abbie Leithold-Gerzema, member of the La Crosse Concert Band Board of Directors.

There are two more Wednesday concerts scheduled for June – the 16th and 23rd.

The band starts back up on July 7th through the end of the month.
