Take Ten: Strike Up the Band!

Twin Falls City Band in 1944

Our Summer Reading Kickoff is tonight at 6:30 PM at City Park – the Twin Falls Municipal Band will be on hand prior to their concert at 8 for a “Musical Instrument Petting Zoo.” They’ll show off their instruments, answer questions, and hopefully inspire some of you to start playing!

To get you in the “band” mood, here are ten awesome marches to encourage you to move. Click on the titles for access to the songs through Freegal, where you can download 5 songs free each week.
