Quantico Marine Corps Band Performs at National Museum of the Marine Corps

MCHF Summer Concert Series

August 19, 2016

(DUMFRIES, Va.) Ė The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation today announced the final concert of its annual Summer Concert Series at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Va. The third installment will feature the Quantico Marine Corps Band, which will perform on August 25 at 7:00 p.m. Now in its seventh year, the summer-long series featured three military bands performing their own unique style of American hits and patriotic classics.

One of the oldest professional musical ensembles of the Marine Corps, the Quantico Marine Corps Band is made up of a ceremonial band and concert band that provides musical performances under the direction of the Commandant of the Marine Corps and the Commander of the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Va. Established in 1918, the band also maintains several smaller ensembles including a brass quintet, woodwind quintet, rock/show band, Dixie-land band and jazz combo ensemble. The 50-member band has performed in many renowned civilian events ranging from the Super Bowl to ceremonies at the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center overlooking Ground Zero.

The concert will be held outdoors on the entry plaza to the Museum. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets. Concessions will be available and the Museum galleries, gift store and Tun Tavern will remain open until the concert begins at 7:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. In the case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved inside to the Museumís Leatherneck Gallery.
