Bowie, MD - POSTCARDS: Thursday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. EST, Bowie Center for the Performing Arts, Bowie, Md. In 1891, John Philip Sousa embarked on the U.S. Marine Band’s first national concert tour, launching a tradition of travel that has continued for the past 125 years. We invite you to hitch a ride with the band as we cross the Atlantic to tour the streets of Paris, immerse ourselves in the history of London and Scotland, and delight in the breathtaking fountains of Rome. “The Stars and Stripes Forever” plays us home, just as it did for Sousa when he first conceived its timeless strains on a return voyage from Europe 110 years ago. The concert is free, no tickets required. Free parking is available.
