Casper Orthopedics and Summit Medical Center will host a Christmas Concert Saturday, December 23, featuring the Lander Volunteer Fire Department Pipe Band, the Casper Firefighters Pipes & Drums and members of the staff at Casper Orthopedics. Open to the public, the concert will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Summit Medical Center located at 6350 E. Second St. in Casper. The holiday concert will be in honor of service members and will serve to raise awareness of the Jerry Behrens Foundation.

The free public concert will feature light refreshments in addition to the musical stylings of the Lander Volunteer Fire Department Pipe Band, Casper Firefighters Pipes & Drums and members of Casper Orthopedics, including orthopedic surgeons Dr. Matthew Mitchell on bagpipes and Dr. Steven Orcutt on guitar.
Concert-goers can expect a festive program of Christmas hymns and traditional songs in celebration of the holidays as well as a special appearance from Santa. Donations will be accepted throughout the concert for the Jerry Behrens Foundation, which supports wounded firefighters and members of the military and police as well as their families.
The Jerry Behrens Foundation was established to support wounded and ill service members in honor of the lifelong achievements and commitment to community service that was demonstrated by co-founder of Casper Orthopedics Jerome A. Behrens, M.D. Casper Orthopedics funds the administrative cost of services so that all financial contributions to the Foundation go directly to its beneficiaries.
“At Casper Orthopedics, we are honored to serve those who have protected us,” says Dr. Mitchell. “We are so grateful to our servicemen and -women, and we are proud to be able to honor them in this event and through the Jerry Behrens Foundation, which through generous donations, is able to help so many service members and their families.”
