Sousa in Rosemount’s Central Park

The 1st John Philip Sousa Memorial Band will be performing on Sunday, June 25, 7p.m., at  the Central Park Amphitheater in Rosemount as part of ArtBlast. This is a free concert. The group was formed in 1970 by a group of graduating Edina Minnesota High School  band members with the purchase of 50 used band uniforms and $30.00 worth of marches.  The Band was brought into the sponsorship of the City of Edina Parks and Recreation in 1973 and has enjoyed their support up to the present time.
