Alexandria, Va. - Sunday, Feb. 11 at 2 p.m. - The Marine Band has provided music to the White House continuously since New Year’s Day 1801. The music of America heard at the Executive Mansion has evolved considerably through the centuries, but its purpose has remained steadfast. Take a virtual tour of the Grand Foyer at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with the Marine Chamber Orchestra in the very configuration in which they regularly appear in the White House, including a State Dinner sequence featuring strolling strings and a jazz combo. Marine Band Director Col. Jason K. Fettig will narrate this unique concert and share memorable musical moments from the last 20 years of performances for White House guests by “The President’s Own.” The performance is free and open to the public and will take place at Northern Virginia Community College's Schlesinger Concert Hall in Alexandria, Va.
