They will play "American Patrol" and "Americans, We" in special arrangements for the euphonium and tuba.

In Anderson's "Bugler's Holiday." a trio of trumpets, Steve Steppe, who teaches in Sullivan County, Dr. Martin Dixon and Jim Chesterson, retired senior master sergeant from the Air National Guard, will delight one and all.

Chesterson will also solo in "Trumpeter's Lullaby," also by Anderson.
