One of the primary responsibilities of the U.S. Navy Band is its national concert tour. Rather than a single tour, the Navy Band’s national concert tour is a collection of tours throughout the year by the various units of the Navy Band. Each year, ensembles of the Navy Band embark for weeks on concert tours throughout specified regions of the country. These tours provide the opportunity to reach out to audiences in areas of the country that may not see the Navy’s premier musical ensembles on a regular basis. The national concert tours of the Navy Band serve audiences with entertaining performances but also allow the Navy direct access to both former and future members of the United States Navy.
Audiences across the country have received the Navy Band with warm support and appreciation. Whether in a local gymnasium or in a famous concert hall, the Navy Band strives to perform with all of the precision and energy that befits its stature. Past tours by Navy Band ensembles have included performances at major municipal halls, community centers, countless universities, outdoor venues and the American Bandmasters Association Annual Convention. These patriotic concerts range from the traditional to the contemporary, showcasing the skill and versatility of the different units of the band.
All Navy Band performances are free and open to the public.
