Summer may be coming to an end, so send it out with a bang — literally! — at one of the Hudson Valley’s favorite annual traditions. The West Point Band’s Labor Day Celebration pays tribute to our nation and the American people with a night of festive music.
Culminating in powerful music accompanied by live cannon fire and a fantastic fireworks display, this concert will feature everything from traditional band fare—including the martial airs of the band’s field music group, the Hellcats; to music from “Encanto” and “The Greatest Showman” featuring the concert band and Benny Havens Band. Bring your picnic and spend an evening taking in the beautiful views at Trophy Point and the music of the West Point Band.
Established in 1817, the West Point Band is the Army’s oldest musical organization and continues to provide world-class music to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets and to serve as ambassadors of the United States Military Academy and the Army to local, national, and international communities.
