 "New Horizons" woodwind quintet is currently stationed at Offutt Air Force Base.  Their touring area currently encompasses 680,000 square miles; the largest geographical area of any stateside band.
The Lofte Community Theatre announces that it will be holding a free Veterans Day concert on Sunday, November 8th at 2pm. The Colors will be proudly presented by Weeping Water Legion Post #237.  This concert is free and open to the public; no advanced reservations are required. 
The USAF Heartland of America Band’s "New Horizons" is a clarinet ensemble, featuring five of the squadron’s excellent clarinet players.  The group’s repertoire consists of classical, jazz and standard clarinet ensemble literature showcasing its musical diversity.  At home in large auditoriums or in more intimate chamber concert settings, New Horizons takes audiences on a tour of some of the world’s most beautiful and exciting music.  Each member of the group is a full-time Air Force professional.  Together they render the perfect blend of tone and musicianship.
The Lofte invites everyone to come and enjoy this moving patriotic event.  Bring your favorite veteran.  Join us to remember those who have served, or are currently serving their country far from home. 
Limited concessions will be available during this event.  For questions or driving directions, please visit the Lofte’s website, www.Lofte.com, or call the box office at (402) 234-2553.
