1776 was 242 years ago and it has been quite journey. Celebrating the 4th of July, at least to those of us here in the US is a time honored tradition. Throughout our history, Americans have listened to wind bands and been stirred by the music that marks the American experience.
The music of independence and liberty almost always moves us. And in keeping with our traditions here at the gathering place for people who love band music, this show will bring music that you might not hear in the park or at a 4th of July celebration.
