On Friday, November 11 at 9 p.m. on WHRO TV 15, tune in for this special program in honor of Veterans Day.
Music & Might: America’s International Tattoo, the first International Tattoo performed anywhere in the world in more than two years. A new one‐hour special; highlights include groups from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard and a total of 500 performers from 5 nations sharing their unique culture and pride. The program features inspirational patriotic music, majestic massed pipes and drums, show-stopping drill team maneuvers, flashy drum line routines and lively Celtic dancers all accompanied by insightful narration and commentary.
From the moment that 6,000 hands touch their hearts during the Star Spangled Banner, to when young and old alike jump to their feet when their family's service song is sung, you will know why this is more than a performance, it is an experience.
Featuring the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command Band Herald Trumpets, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Reserve Band, U.S. Navy Fleet Forces Band, and U.S Air Force Heritage of America Band. International highlights include a Dutch Military Band on Bicycles, world champion pipers from the Highlands of Scotland, a massed choir, and the very finest highland dancers from the U.S, U.K. and Canada.
In the words of Rudyard Kipling “No one can say for certain where the soul of a battalion lives; but the expression of that soul is most often found in the Band”.
