132nd WI Army National Guard Band (Summer Tour - 2012)
The 132nd Wisconsin Army National Guard Band will be performing throughout the state of Wisconsin as part of its annual summer tour.
The 132nd Army Band is composed of approximately 50-60 soldier musicians who live in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa, but proudly represent the Wisconsin Army National Guard. Based out of the National Guard State Headquarters in Madison, these citizen soldiers come together approximately one weekend per month and two weeks during the summer.
As a part of their summer tour, the 132nd Wisconsin Army National Guard Band will be performing at Thorp’s July Music in the park event on Tuesday, July 10, at 7:00 p.m. at Northside Park. Fireworks will follow at dusk.
The band entertains troops and civilians all over the State of Wisconsin and in the past several years has also traveled to Germany, Oklahoma, and Hawaii. The versatility of the band is apparent with their many performing ensembles to include: concert band, ceremonial band, jazz band, jazz combo, rock band, brass quintet, woodwind quintet, sax ensemble, and trombone quartet.
