About this Event

Join the West Point Band as we kick off our Masterworks Series with this melodic mix of American music from masters of our time, including selections from John Williams’ American Journey, Set No. 3 of Timothy Broege’s Three Pieces for American Band, and Alex Shapiro’s celebratory Homecoming. We’ll also travel across the pond with a performance of British composer Peter Graham’s sentimental and virtuosic euphonium solo Brillante, featuring Staff Sgt. Phil Broome. A sprinkling of Sousa marches along with some vocal jazz tunes sung by Master Sgt. MaryKay Messenger round out this entertaining program by the Army’s oldest band.

In the event of inclement weather, the performance will move to January 20.
