The West Point Band will kick off its “Music under the Stars” concert series with a performance in honor of the 242nd Army Birthday on Saturday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Trophy Point Amphitheater at West Point. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will move indoors to Eisenhower Hall Theatre. This concert is free and open to all.
The band’s commander, Lt. Col. Tod Addison, and deputy commander Capt. Richard Winkels will take to the podium and lead the band in an exciting program entitled “March Along, Sing Our Song,” which will commemorate the Army’s 242 years of selfless service to the nation. In keeping with tradition, the concert will feature a streamer ceremony commemorating the campaigns fought by Soldiers throughout our nation’s history, as well as a cake-cutting.
The band will also welcome back West Point Band alumni for this special performance.
Established in 1817, the West Point Band is the Army’s oldest musical organization.
