Quintette 7 plays ‘Road Trip Across America’ Aug. 8

The West Point Band’s Music Under the Stars concert series continues as Quintette 7 presents its annual “Kids Night” concert on Saturday, Aug. 8, at 6:30 p.m. at Trophy Point Amphitheater. The concert will be preceded by an instrument petting zoo at 6 p.m., where children can interact with the musicians and learn about different musical instruments. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will move indoors to Eisenhower Hall Ballroom. This concert is free and open to the public.

This year’s concert is themed “Road Trip Across America” featuring Sgt. 1st Class Josh Economy as the MC and tour guide. The adventure across this great land begins in California with a surf competition and moves to a rodeo in Texas, followed by a barn dance in Nashville. Then watch a rocket ship take off in Florida, tour Manhattan, ship up to Boston for some Revolutionary fun, and return to West Point in time to march in a cadet parade. Kids of all ages will enjoy activities and a diverse musical soundscape as they tour the U.S. in under an hour.
