U. S. Navy Birthday Concert

Navy Birthday Concert

Join us in celebrating the Navy’s 238th birthday on Wednesday, October 9th at 7:30 p.m. We’re excited to announce that this year's concert will be at a new location, the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda, Md. Free parking will be available at the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station garage on Tuckerman Lane.

Hosted by Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Jonathan Greenert, the concert will highlight the heritage of our nation and Navy, pay tribute to our officers from the space program, and honor our wounded warriors and their caregivers. Four Navy Band ensembles will collaborate to perform something for everyone, from traditional songs of the sea to contemporary country tunes. In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, quotes by Abraham Lincoln highlighting freedom and liberty will be displayed on the video screen throughout the concert. Join us in a celebration of our heritage, and salute our wounded warriors and care givers! Stay tuned for ticket information!
