United States Navy Band: Concert On The Avenue
Music Event Hosted by United States Navy Band
The Concerts on the Avenue series, featuring the United States Navy Band and Navy Ceremonial Guard, is presented on select Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. during the summer at the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington. The concert series began in 1997 and combines a wide variety of music in addition to precision drill by the Ceremonial Guard.
Following the presentation of the state and territorial flags of the United States by the Navy Ceremonial Guard, the Navy Drill Team executes their flawless demonstration of close order drill, coordination and timing. These Sailors carry 1903 Springfield rifles, all with 10-inch fixed bayonets.
Each year the concert highlights naval history and heritage, honors our fleet and pays tribute to our nation’s veterans. This family-friendly concert features a variety of musical genres, including current radio hits and iconic American music as well as patriotic standards.
