Fairfield Glade, Tennessee, Selected for U.S. Navy Band Tour
Submitted: Mrs. Kayla Good Navy Office of Community Outreach Monday August 21, 2017

Press Release:

WASHINGTON -- America's Navy is coming to Fairfield Glade, Tennessee, one of five cities in two states to host a performance by the United States Navy Band during a 2017 tour -- one of the signature outreach programs of the U.S. Navy.

The United States Navy Band Brass Quintet performance is scheduled for Sept. 22, 2017, at 7 p.m. at Fairfield Glade Community Church.

Since 1971, the Navy Band Brass Quintet has performed at ceremonies and events throughout the Washington, D.C., area, including high visibility performances at the White House, Pentagon, State Department and Washington Navy Yard. Notable performances include inaugural events for President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney in 2000 and 2004, the dedication of the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and remembrance services at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial. Additionally, the group has been featured on NBC's Meet the Press and the Today Show. Committed to educational outreach, the quintet is an active participant in the Navy Band's Music in the Schools program, and has presented masterclasses and clinics nationwide at high schools, universities and international music conferences. The quintet's repertoire includes over 400 works spanning six centuries, with many compositions arranged by its members.

One of the U.S. Navy Band's primary responsibilities involves touring the country. All of the band's primary performing units embark each year on concert tours throughout specified regions of the country, allowing the band to reach out to audiences in areas of the country that do not have opportunities to see the Navy's premier musical ensembles on a regular basis. The concerts are family-friendly events, meant to be entertaining to veterans, families, individuals and those interested in joining the Navy.

All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public.
