More than a hundred music connoisseurs came out to hear the Siouxland All America band perform popular favorites from classical greats like Sousa, Puccini and even Disney.  The group's 2016 concert is the band's 25th annual concert. This year's concert fell on Valentine's Day. The concerts usually benefit a local non-profit.  This year's beneficiary was the Friends of Latham Park.

"Each one of our concerts we have a non profit organization picked as the beneficiary. Our corporate sponsors for the band, they are local business people and they sponsor the band so that we can give 100% of the proceeds from the ticket sales for each concert to that non profit organization."

One hundred percent of the $10 admission fee went to the Friends of Latham Park Association to help with up-keep of the park.
