US Navy Band to make stop in Roanoke


ROANOKE, Va. – The United States Navy Band is scheduled to make a stop in Roanoke. 

The United States Navy Band Country Current performance will be August 16 at 7 p.m. at Elmwood Park.

Roanoke is one of five cities in two states to host the band. 

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. 

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