The U.S. Marine Band is the only musical unit that bears the title “The President’s Own” and whose mission is to provide music for the President of the United States and the Commandant of the Marine Corps. The Marine Band performs a varied repertoire including new works for wind ensemble, traditional concert band literature, challenging orchestral transcriptions and the patriotic marches that made it famous. The band frequently features its members in solo performances that highlight their virtuosity and artistry. Marine Band first became The President’s Own on New Year’s Day in 1801, when President John Adams invited the Band to perform at the Executive Mansion. Later that year, the Marine Band began a very important tradition by participating in Thomas Jefferson’s first Inaugural. The Marine Band has performed for every Presidential Inaugural since. Let them perform for you – FOR FREE.
