We finally took a little time to post some photos from our magnificent concert last week, featuring The President’s Own United States Marine Band. The sold-out crowd was extremely responsive and all were thrilled with the selection of music, the ultimate musicianship and the pride that was felt that this great band would come to Vernal.
This band is at the top, the pinnacle, of all military bands. There are lots of Army, Navy, Air Force & Marine bands. But, there is only one “President’s Own” Marine Band. The others are good… sometimes great… but this one is the best. It doesn’t matter who the President is… but this band is for the President and the White House and the Capital… and for us, the citizens of this great nation.
Thank you to all of the folks who came out to the concert. I think it’s an event that you will always remember. I’m not sure if it’s a chance that will ever come our way again. I hope so.
Most of you won’t be aware that they went to Uintah High School on Friday morning, after the concert Thursday night, and spent some time with the high school band. A big “Thank You” to them for their outreach and the opportunity to learn from them.
The brass and percussion sections then appeared with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on the Music & the Spoken Word television broadcast on Sunday morning following their visit to Vernal, Orem and Sandy on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We enjoyed keeping them hopping in Utah.
