WEST POINT BAND PRESENTS ARMED FORCES DAY CONCERT
West Point, NY – The West Point Band will present a concert in honor of Armed Forces Day on Sunday, May 17 at 2:00 p.m. in Eisenhower Hall Theatre, honoring the dedicated servicemembers who protect our freedom. This concert is free and open to the public.
On August 31, 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. Please join the West Point Band under the baton of its commander, Lieutenant Colonel Andrew J. Esch, in coming together to thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country. The campus of the United States Military Academy provides the perfect backdrop for an afternoon of world-class music celebrating the branches of the Armed Forces.
Established in 1817, the West Point Band is the Army’s oldest musical organization and continues to provide world-class music to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets and to serve as ambassadors of the United States Military Academy and the Army to local, national, and international communities.
