U.S. Marine Band Concert Tour to make stop in Ridgefield

The 2022 U.S. Marine Band Concert Tour to the Northeast is making a stop in Ridgefield.  The concert is sponsored by American Legion Post 78. The concert is free, but tickets are required and limited to 4 per request.  The Marine Band is America’s oldest continuously active professional musical organization.  The concert at Ridgefield High School is scheduled for October 25th at 7:30pm.  Founded in 1798, the band has performed for every U.S. President since John Adams. Known as “The President’s Own” since the days of Thomas Jefferson, the Marine Band’s primary mission is to provide music for the President of the United States and the Commandant of the Marine Corps.  The band’s 17th Director, John Philip Sousa, initiated the concert tour tradition in 1891.
