Navy Band of Washington to perform Friday

April 29, 2001

The United States Navy Band of Washington will perform at 8 p.m. Friday at Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts on Hammonds Lane, under the sponsorship of the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum.

Its musicians have participated in 18 presidential inaugurals and play at White House ceremonies and memorial services in Arlington National Cemetery. The band also presents public concerts in the Washington metropolitan area and tours the country annually.

The band is under the direction of Cmdr. Ralph M. Gambone - the 11th officer to hold that position since the group was established in 1925 by an act of Congress.

FOR THE RECORD - In Sunday's Anne Arundel edition of The Sun, a brief item on the North County page gave an incorrect date for a free performance by the United States Navy Band of Washington at Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts in Brooklyn Park. In fact, the band is scheduled to play at 8 p.m. Saturday. The Sun regrets the error.

Subscriptions for PAAL's next concert season will be available for purchase.

Information: Jo Barker, 410- 859-3308.
