122nd Army Band to perform at Kenston
Kenston Schools is pleased to host the Ohio Army National Guard’s 122 nd Army Band, Ohio’s premier military music ensemble. They will perform a FREE concert in the Kenston High School, Auditorium, 9500 Bainbridge Road, Chagrin Falls on Sunday, July 1st at 3:00 p.m. Doors will open at 2:30 p.m.
The Summer 2018 Tour will celebrate the music and legacy of The Beatles! 1964 brought a huge change to the musical culture of the United States — it was the start of the British Invasion. No group exemplified the spirit of the 60's more than The Beatles. John, Paul, George, and Ringo — the Fab Four — redefined rock and roll in a time of huge social and cultural change in the US.
Since 1944, the Ohio National Guard’s 122 nd Army Band has been a staple of the musical tradition of the United States military in Ohio. Members from every corner of the state and beyond are charged with carrying out the mission of increasing troop morale and maintaining the vital link between the public and the Ohio Army National Guard. The 122nd performs in dozens of concerts, ceremonies and other functions each year.
Band members spend a significant amount of time during the year preparing a summer performance schedule, all while only assembling as a unit for one weekend a month and for two weeks in the summer. Yet, the band still performs a repertoire that allows the audience to hear the full breadth of talent of the 122nd’s members in a concert setting. A full list of the band’s upcoming performances can be found on the band’s website at 122nd Army Band.
