Comprised of graduates from America’s finest music schools, the professional musicians of the West Point Band provide world-class music and support to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets and to serve as ambassadors of the United States Military Academy and the Army for local, national, and international communities. The West Point Band’s chamber ensembles perform for official military functions, social occasions, formal concerts, public service and educational youth clinics and concerts. The Regimental Brass was formed in 2003 and presents a diverse repertoire from Renaissance to modern works to its audiences. In addition to its performances for military functions, the ensemble has been featured on concert series throughout the country, recently including performances in Florida, Oregon, Connecticut, South Dakota, Utah, and Iowa.
This is a 70-minute program with no intermission, held outdoors in the open air chapel at Asbury United Methodist Church.

Asbury Church and its music directors have presented choral and organ concerts to the public over many years and the Asbury Summer Theatre group operated for 32 years, presenting over 30 sold-out shows to thousands of delighted audience members.
