HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band performed a free concert for the community Sunday afternoon at Glen Allen High School.

Before the concert, Glen Allen band students spent time learning from the band.

The U.S. Marine Band is America’s oldest continuously active professional musical organization, with a mission to provide music for the President and the Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Each fall, the Marine Band travels throughout a portion of U.S. during its concert tour, a tradition initiated in 1891 by “The March King” John Philip Sousa, who was the band’s legendary 17th Director.
