CLEAR ALL

The year 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. Although seven decades have passed since that turbulent time, we continue to celebrate the monumental accomplishments of the incredible men and women of our “Greatest Generation.” It was also exactly 70 years from this concert date—on Feb. 23, 1945—that Joe Rosenthal snapped his immortal photograph of five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the flag on Mount Suribachi during the battle of Iwo Jima. Come join the Marine Band and guest narrator and former Marine Jim Lehrer, journalist, author, and former anchor of the PBS NewsHour, for a Time Capsule concert that celebrates the legacy of the hard fought victory of World War II. The concert is free but tickets are required and limited to two per request. Tickets will be available at the Strathmore box office or online at www.strathmore.org approximately one month prior to the concert. - The year 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
