Quantico Marine Corps Base, Va. - Sunday, March 4 at 2 p.m. - Violinist William H. Santelmann was Director of the Marine Band, serving from 1898-1927. Under his leadership a symphony orchestra was formed within “The President’s Own” and was composed of band musicians who doubled on string instruments. During this program, the Marine Chamber Orchestra will take the audience back to 1918, a time when the world was at war. The program will include Staff Sgt. Charlaine Prescott’s performance of Camille Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1 and former Marine Band Director Taylor Branson’s march, “The Marines of Belleau Wood,” in honor of the centennial of the battle that established the Marine Corps as an indispensable fighting force. Free parking in the garage located at 2050 Broadway St.; there is no drop off or pick up at the entrance. The performance is free and open to the public and will take place in Warner Auditorium at the Marine Corps University on Quantico Marine Corps Base, Va.
