 “We’re Going Over: Recreating the 112th Infantry Regiment Band.”

Join us for an evening of WWI-era music performed by the Gilded Age Town Band. This historical performance will recreate an exact program performed by the 112th Infantry Regiment Band, 28th Division, A.E.F. in May 1918, aboard the troopship that carried the regiment to Liverpool, England. The musicians will perform traditional favorites like the “William Tell Overture” and John Phillip Sousa’s arrangement of the National Anthem. Many will be performing with authentic U.S. military band instruments.

Concessions are available from Mamie’s Toffee & Treats, Golden Eagle Hotdogs, and Aunt Tina’s Sound Bites. Standard concert etiquette applies.
