Alexandria, Va. - Sunday, March 11 at 2 p.m. - This Living History program will tell the story of those talented and adventurous women who served our country in a most unique and unprecedented manner. Author of the book Bands of Sisters: U.S. Women’s Military Bands During World War II, Dr. Jill Sullivan will serve as a guide through the personal accounts of those very women who blazed a trail for many to follow. The Marine Corps Women’s Reserve Band of Camp Lejeune was established under the watch of “The President’s Own” to support bond drives and was active during World War II from 1943–45. In 1944, the ensemble even sat in for one of the Marine Band’s popular “Dream Hour” broadcasts, a program that will be reenacted in its entirety as part of this concert. The performance is free and open to the public and will take place in Schlesinger Concert Hall at Northern Virginia Community College. It will also stream live on the Marine Band website.
