Front Porch: U.S. Navy Concert Band to play free event
The Concert Band is based in Washington, D.C. Its members include Broadway-trained musicians and singers who perform on television and for the president at major national and international events.
Over the years, Everett has enjoyed performances by other Navy bands, including the 18-member jazz band in 2012. This visit is made possible by the city of Everett and Everett public schools.
"This performance will be especially exciting for students from our high schools who will be joining the Navy musicians to play John Philip Sousa's 'Washington Post,'" said Superintendent Gary Cohn. "It is an honor to partner with the city to bring this group to the community and to give our students this experience to play with professionals."
Free tickets to the concert are available online at http://tinyurl.com/bx7o7l5.
