Summer Blast Off! this Sunday, May 27 @ 8pm. Maybe you're already planning to be here or maybe you haven't been before, either way, let me give you a few reasons to try it out.
Who comes to the Wolf Trap Summer Blast Off?
People on a budget (it’s free!)
People who love music
People excited to kick off the summer season with a bang
…and everybody in between!
What is the Summer Blast Off?
Blast Off! is a Wolf Trap summer tradition that happens in two parts. First, the United States Marine Band plays a beautiful set at the Filene Center from 8pm until about 9:30pm. Songs include a mix of patriotic, big band, and orchestral arrangements. If you’ve never heard the USMB perform before, you really must. They are the best of the best, and did I mention it's free?
Here is the USMB set list.
March, "Hail to the Spirit of Liberty"
Jubel Overture, J.245
Suite from Band of Brothers
Suite from A White House Cantata
Overture Solennelle, "1812"
"God of Our Fathers"
"The Stars and Stripes Forever"
A Salute to the Armed Forces of the United States of America
I hope to see you all there this Sunday!
