1st Marine Division Band free concert
Based out of Camp Pendleton, the 1st Marine Division Band is made up of 50 Marine musicians. While the primary mission of the band is to provide musical support for military parades and ceremonies, its musicians also perform at more than 300 commitments each year, including the annual concerts at the Center. The musicians play in several different ensembles, and, as in years past, it is the Concert Band that will take the stage in Escondido.
While admission is free, concertgoers will need to reserve their seats in advance. Only six tickets at a time can be reserved online. If you need to reserve seats for a larger group, call the Ticket Office at (800) 988-4253.
