Join the Naval Academy Band for a favorite Annapolis tradition: Holiday by the Bay. The concert will take place on Wednesday, December 16 at 7:30 p.m. on the grounds of the Naval Academy at the Main Chapel. The United States Naval Academy Band, “The Navy’s Oldest and Finest,” has been providing music for the Brigade of Midshipmen and surrounding community since 1852. Located at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, this premier military band offers world-class ensembles which perform a variety of musical styles, ranging from classical to contemporary. The band will perform holiday works and sing-alongs, and will be joined by the Naval Academy Primary School Chorus, conducted by Ms. Cathy Toney. Audience members will also be treated to an appearance by a certain jolly old elf, who will be on hand to deliver candy. Naval Academy Band concerts are free and open to the public with no tickets required. The Chapel is located at 108 Blake Rd. just inside Gate 3. A shuttle service from Navy-Marines Corps Stadium will be provided from 6:30-9:30 pm. Pick-up location and other information on the stadium shuttle can be found at http://www.usna.edu/Transportation/stadiumshuttle.php. Pedestrians may use Gate 3 on Maryland Avenue until 9:30 pm.
