Fort Leonard Wood’s 399th Army Band is rehearsing and preparing for this week’s live holiday performance on the installation. Chief Warrant Officer 4 Jared DeLaney, the band’s commander and bandmaster, says doors will open at 6 p.m. this Tuesday, December 12th, at Nutter Field House. The holiday concert is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. and last about an hour. Delaney thinks the holiday performances’ best part is “the people.” “Music is a powerful medium that tells a story, touches the soul, and supports our resiliency. Watching the audience having this realization is exhilarating and a testament to the value and contribution of the 399th and all Army bands,” Delaney said. The band performed at the tree-lighting ceremony on the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence Plaza and hosted a holiday concert at the Cowan Civic Center in Lebanon last week. The concert is open to the public and will be live-streamed on Fort Leonard Wood’s Facebook page. For installation access information, visit the Fort Leonard Wood website.
