The U.S. Military Academy Band will continue its Music Under the Stars concert series with Dress Right Dress: Music for Military Bands at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 20, at the Trophy Point Amphitheater. The performance will showcase some of the finest music written for military bands performed by one of the finest ensembles of the medium: the USMA Band. This concert is free and open to the public.

Selections include Mars from Holst’s The Planets, Morton Gould’s American Salute, and three of Glenn Miller’s most beloved songs: A String of Pearls, Moonlight Serenade, and In the Mood. Nothing better personifies the music of military bands more than a march.

The West Point Band will perform a number of famous marches, including The Official West Point March, Semper Fidelis, Garry Owen, Colonel Bogey, National Emblem, and The Stars and Stripes Forever. Vocalist Master Sgt. MaryKay Messenger will be featured as she sings American Anthem and a medley of Irving Berlin selections.
