Join us on August 29, 2024 at 7 PM, as the “The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band perform at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. The Marine Band’s 25th Director Colonel John R. Bourgeois, USMC (Ret.), returns to guest conduct the band.
The Marine Band performs a varied repertoire, traditional concert band literature, challenging orchestral transcriptions, and the patriotic marches that made it famous. The band frequently features its members in solo performances that highlight their virtuosity and artistry. The U.S. Marine Band is the only musical unit that bears the title “The President’s Own” and whose mission is to provide music for the President of the United States and the Commandant of the Marine Corps.
The free Summer Concerts are held outdoors on the National Museum of the Marine Corps’ entry plaza, weather permitting. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets. Please enjoy extended hours before the concert begins. The Museum and Store will be open until 7:00 PM. Tun Tavern will be open until 6:00 PM.
*No alcoholic beverages will be permitted on the Museum ground
