Due to limitations on government funds, The U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” must cancel its Anniversary Concert at The Music Center at Strathmore this year. All tickets distributed to the Strathmore show are null and void and may be discarded.
We will instead present four (4) performances of our annual spectacular at Brucker Hall on Fort Myer in Arlington, Virginia:
** will have a sign-language interpreter
We will begin to issue online tickets for these four (4) performances at NOON on Tuesday, February 19. Tickets will be limited to six (6) per patron.
A photo ID is required to gain entrance to the Army Installation and a cursory vehicle search will be conducted if you do not carry a DoD ID. Plan on an additional 10-minutes for this vehicle search.
If you cannot attend in person, you may view a live HD-web broadcast of any of the four performances on www.usarmyband.com.
The Fine Print: Tickets are required for this event. These concerts will be slightly oversold, and there is a possibility that some ticket holders will not be seated in the Lodoba Studio. Overflow seating will be offered in Brucker Hall’s recital hall with a closed-circuit audio and large-screen video display.
Under the direction of COL Thomas H. Palmatier, 9th Leader and Commander, The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” presents an entertaining and inspiring performance celebrating its place in history as the “Band of the Chief of Staff of the Army” and its role as the premier musical organization of the US Army.
Founded in 1922 by order of General of the Army John J. “Black Jack” Pershing (then Army Chief of Staff), “Pershing’s Own” celebrates this special milestone with a 2 hour 10 minute concert (including 20 minute intermission). This concert will feature performances by many of the unit’s distinct musical elements, as well as historical highlights that herald the musical and military heritage of The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own.”
