Fanfare to the Military & Democracy

Join the American Evolution for an all-star performance by musicians in the armed forces.

Strike up the bands! The Virginia Arts Festival is partnering with 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution to present an unforgettable concert featuring the best of the U.S. military bands on November 9, 2019 at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach.

Hampton Roads is home to the largest concentration of active duty and retired military in the United States, and we’re showing our pride and gratitude to our veterans in this special performance featuring stirring marches and patriotic songs, dramatic film music, and your favorite pop and country songs—plus rousing moments of celebration as conductors from each branch of the military—Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force—lead tunes near and dear to their troops. Plus, stay tuned for an announcement of a special guest performer, coming soon!
