The President's Own United States Marine Band's mission is to perform for the President of the United States and the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Founded in 1798 by an Act of Congress, the Marine Band is America's oldest continuously active professional musical organization. This performance is part of its 2019 National Concert Tour, which begins in Seattle and ends in Las Vegas. The band only tours this region once every ten years. Conducted by Col. Jason K. Fettig, the program will follow the traditional format of the band's legendary 17th director John Philip Sousa, and feature marches, orchestral transcriptions, virtuoso soloists, new works for winds, and patriotic selections.
This show is general admission with first come, first served seating. Tickets will be available through the box office, starting October 1, in person or over the phone.
