It’s a holiday tradition for many on Whidbey Island. Navy Band Northwest will present a free holiday concert for the community at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 13, in the Oak Harbor High School’s Performing Arts Center.
Performing nearly 500 engagements each year and encompassing both military and civilian events, Navy Band Northwest is the premier United States Navy musical organization in the Northwest. The 35 rated Navy musicians perform in various musical units, including the Ceremonial and Parade Bands, Popular Music Group, Brass Band, Brass Quintet, woodwind chamber groups, and a Protocol Jazz Combo.
The musicians come together for several holiday performances across the region, which feature a broad range of classic holiday songs and new arrangements of old favorites. The concert is free and no tickets are required.
Navy Band Northwest is under the leadership of its Director, Lt. Bruce Mansfield, and falls operationally under the command of Rear Admiral Jeff Ruth, Commander Navy Region Northwest.
