ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud Municipal Band is getting ready for another goodwill trip overseas.

The band leaves on Thursday with their first stop in St. Cloud's sister city Spalt, Germany.

Spokesman Paul Habstritt says the group then goes to Saltzburg, Austria where the band's Dixieland Combo will play with a city brass group.  And their final stops will be in Vernona and Venice, Italy.

Habrstritt says some of their concerts are outside for curious onlookers...

Every member of the band that is going is paying their own way. There's about 25 musicians, and a total of 40 people that are going.

Before they go to Europe, the St. Cloud Municipal Band is performing a free concert tonight (Monday) at 7:30 p.m. at Calvary Church in St. Cloud.

The St. Cloud Municipal Band is in it's 127th year.
