“The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band in Concert in Medford

October 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

A decade has passed since the scarlet coats of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band last appeared on stages along the West Coast. However, on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019 the band returns and will play a free concert in Medford. The performance, held at North Medford High School at 7:30 p.m., is sponsored by the North Medford High School Band and Rosebud Media.

Free tickets are available (limit four per request) by visiting marineband.ticketleap.com. Seating is general admission and ticket holders must be seated by 7:15 p.m.; remaining seats will be released to the standby line at that time.
In the style of the band’s 17th Director John Philip Sousa, who initiated the concert tour tradition in 1891, Marine Band Director Col. Jason K. Fettig has chosen a diverse mix of programs¾from traditional band repertoire and Sousa marches to instrumental solos and a salute to the Armed Forces.

The Marine Band is America’s oldest continuously active professional musical organization. Founded in 1798, the band has performed for every U.S. President since John Adams. Known as “The President’s Own” since the days of Thomas Jefferson, the Marine Band’s mission is to provide music for the President of the United States and the Commandant of the Marine Corps.
