Pride in Service has been the theme for
Navy Band Great Lakes for more than a century. From 1911, when the
band first formed, to 1917, when Lieutenant Commander John Philip
Sousa served as Bandmaster, to today's Director, Lieutenant Patrick
Hill, our music represents the pride and professionalism that is
synonymous with the United States Navy.
Serving Commander, Naval Service Training
Command's mission of transforming volunteers into 21st century Sea
Warriors, Navy Band Great Lakes performs ceremonies to honor
recruits, Sailors, and their families. Also, as the Navy's
Ambassadors to the Midwest, Navy Band Great Lakes performs for
millions yearly. We provide musical support for communities of all
sizes as well as supporting Navy recruiting in an eleven state area
of responsibility stretching from Michigan to North Dakota.
