United States Marine Band Anniversary Concert at Strathmore

 

Tuesday, July 10, 2018 was Chef Dolores' birthday and she had one special request. She wanted to attend the United Marine Band Anniversary Concert at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Maryland on Tuesday night. We reserved tickets and the concert was outstanding. The guest conductor and piano soloist was Bramwell Tovey. Click on the link to learn more about this concert.

July 11th was the 220th anniversary of The President's Own United States Marine Band. The band was established by an Act of Congress in 1798 and the United States Marine Band is America's oldest continuously active professional musical organization.

Good morning, Roy... a belated happy birthday to Dolores. The Marine Band is awesome. I remember attending the concerts on the Mall in Washington DC in the mid-1960's when I was there in college... all the military bands were always out of this world.
