A Unique Concert Band
During my time in the Navy, concert band was something you had to put up with, an annoyance like haircuts, morning inspections and master chiefs.
But, thanks to the NMA, I've come to enjoy concert band. So much so, that, even though I don't play in it, I actually go to the rehearsals.
And I'm not alone; rehearsals of this ensemble attract a dedicated audience. I've been involved in Navy concert bands since 1975 and this is the first one whose rehearsals are attended by people who are not there under direct orders.
