August 13, 2014
The Valhalla Arts, Music and Theatre Festival will wrap up this season with two free musical performances scheduled for Aug. 17 and 18.
On Aug. 17, Valhalla presents this year's final show in the Concert on the Lawn series. The Banana Slug String Band, an acclaimed children's act, will provide the music for the special free kids concert.
The band produces original music full of inspiring messages about taking care of each other and the environment, according to a press release. Everyone, especially families, is invited to bring a picnic to the Grand Lawn at Valhalla, where the show will take place from noon to 2 p.m.
Then, to close out the festival, a free concert featuring the U.S. Air Force woodwinds band the Golden West Winds from Travis Air Force Base will be held Aug. 18.
The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. in the Boathouse Theatre, where the Golden West Winds will perform "an assortment of chamber music ranging from the works of baroque masters to the ragtime of Scott Joplin — music that will appeal to all ages," according to the release.
