In 2022, The U.S. Army Band is bringing the show to the National Mall for our traditional end-of-summer special. You can count on performances by The U.S. Army Concert Band and Herald Trumpets featuring vocalists from the Army Chorus and Downrange. The evening's program will be a traditional program of fun music culminating with Dudley Buck's Festival Overture on the "The Star Spangled Banner" featuring The Old Guard Presidential Salute Battery. We can't wait to host another enthusiastic crowd and we're looking forward to bringing you the inspiring and entertaining music you've come to expect from Pershing's Own. We can promise, you'll leave feeling good about the flag!
