The Wreaths Across America's "Military Musicians Showcase" Features the United States Army Field Band and its Legacy Series.

Wreaths Across America knows some of the finest musicians out there are members of our military performance groups. Each month, we like to feature the musical works of those talented individuals which span a variety of musical genres.

In keeping with our mission objectives to remember, honor and teach the Wreaths Across America Military Musicians Showcase features the stories and history behind the music performance and performers.

The first hour of this month's Military Musicians Showcase is dedicated to George Gershwin. The second hour is devoted to the Legacy of W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan.

The Legacy Series are recordings, "designed primarily as educational resources." The subject and compositions in each series are thoroughly researched and presented in the CD with biographical information, detailed program notes, and historical pictures for, "insight into the compositions."

The performing groups of the US Army Field band include the Concert Band, the Soldier's Chorus, the Jazz Ambassadors, and The Volunteers. They perform free concerts across the country annually. Additionally, they are committed to education and the arts.

The Legacy Series aired as part of the Wreaths Across America's Military Musicians Showcase is just one component of the Field Band's educational resources.
