The United States Air Force Heartland of America Band is returning to Glenwood next month to spread some holiday cheer.


Through the sponsorship of The Opinion-Tribune newspaper and Glenwood Community School District, the band from Offutt Air Force Base is returning to Glenwood for a fifth straight year to present its 2017 “Sounds of the Season” holiday concert in the Glenwood Community High School auditorium on Sunday, Dec. 10, at 2 p.m.

Free tickets for the concert are now available on a first-come basis at The Opinion-Tribune office, Glenwood State Bank and First National Bank. Ticket distribution will be limited to four per person.

Seating for the concert will be general admission and ticket holders will be required to be seated 10 minutes prior to the start of the performance.

The Glenwood concert will be the band’s lone public performance in Iowa during the upcoming holiday season.

Opinion-Tribune editor Joe Foreman said the newspaper is once again honored to partner with the school district in bringing the Heartland of America Band back to Glenwood, noting the concert has now become one of many great holiday events taking place in the community.

“The musicians from Offutt Air Force Base enjoy coming to Glenwood for what’s become a holiday season tradition in Glenwood,” Foreman said.

Doug  Roe, the band’s director of operations, said the performing arts auditorium at GCHS is first-class.

“It’s a wonderful venue and we appreciate the warm reception the band always receives from the Glenwood community,” Roe said.
