What They Do
Life as a Navy Musician is one of variety! Whether you're assigned to one of our two Premiere bands The United States Navy Band Washington, DC, or the Naval Academy Band in Annapolis MD or one of our twelve fleet bands, you will have the opportunity to perform virtually every idiom from Sousa marches to MTV-from Broadway to symphonic wind ensemble-from contemporary rock to big band jazz, and from blue grass to baroque.
As a member of a Navy Band, your performances might include presidential inaugurations; parades down Main Street USA or the Avenue des Champs Elysees in Paris; military ceremonies on the White House lawn or aboard carriers out at sea; public shows and concerts as well as live radio and television broadcasts.
Following graduation you'll be assigned to one of our Navy Bands located throughout the continental United States, Hawaii, Japan and Italy. The needs of the Navy along with your personal preferences determine your individual assignment location.
