This October marks the 243rd birthday of the United States Navy and we invite you to join us as we celebrate! This year’s concert will feature the Concert Band, Sea Chanters chorus, and the Cruisers popular music group. This production features popular songs from today, movie music, hits from past decades, and more. Throughout the evening we will honor our Naval heritage, pay tribute to our wounded warriors, celebrate our great nation, and hear from Sailors around the fleet.
Navy music consists of 11 bands, stationed around the United States and around the world, representing more than 320,000 active-duty Sailors, as well as the Navy’s reserve, and civilian forces. They actively support the Navy’s public outreach and recruiting efforts, participating in about 6,000 performances a year, for live audiences totaling more than 14 million people and reaching more than 276 million people via broadcast.
Stationed in Washington, The United States Navy Band is the premier musical organization of the U.S. Navy. With 174 enlisted musicians and four officers, the band is comprised of six primary performing groups as well as a host of smaller ensembles. From national concert tours to presidential inaugurals and memorial services at Arlington National Cemetery, the Navy Band proudly represents the men and women of the largest, most versatile, most capable naval force on the planet today: America's Navy.
Tickets become available August 27. Maximum of 4 tickets per order.
