USMC Band Play at Wolf Trap


 Let's visit the Memorial Day Celebration at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts.


The United States Marine Band performs followed by fireworks.





USMC Band Plays at Wolf Trap

By the way, if you are not familiar with our military bands, these folks are master musicians. Most in the USMC Band have masters degrees in music with a fair number of Phds.

These men and women are at the top of their profession and it shows.





You can check out the USMC Band's mission, schedule, members and their musical backgrounds right here:

I've included two videos here. The first captures the sights at Wolf Trap and a video of the fireworks. Even though we got to the park early, we were seated too far back to get good sound and video of the performance itself, so I have also included a video of the band playing the Marine Hymn, recorded by another fan.






The Marine Band is known as "The President's Own" and has been since it performed for Thomas Jefferson. Founded in 1798, the band is this country's oldest continuously active professional musical organization. Its main mission is to provide music for the president of the United States.






USMC Band Plays at Wolf TrapNot familiar with Wolf Trap National Park in Vienna VA? Well, the best performers in the world consider it an honor to play here. Come on out and visit.

Arrive early and picnic on the grounds. You can buy lawn seat tickets and eat all night or come inside and purchase tickets as you would in any auditorium but hey you cannot eat in the Filene Center.
