Music and Military Presentation at Warhawk Air Museum

10:00am - 11:30am

Warhawk Air Museum

Join Ray Mansisidor, WWII Veteran, pilot and accordionist, as he joins his friends in a presentation entitled, “Music and Military Campaigns over the Past Century.” Music for the troops and for the country has been such an important part of the history of the military. The group plans to provide you with a look back at some of the music that has continued to fill our lives and often has an emotional impact on us – taking us back to an event or place when we first heard it.  Jack Donohue, a masterful accordionist, now an Idaho resident originally from the east coast, is sure to captivate the crowd with his renditions of popular songs associated with military campaigns over the past 100 years. Ray Mansisidor, who is of Basque decent, will lead a group of local musicians and friends, in playing some ethnic songs associated with those eras.
