Sedona AZ (June 25, 2015) – “Arizona’s Own” 108th Army Band, Arizona Army National Guard, will perform on Friday, July 3rd from 11:30 – 1:00 at Canyon Breeze Plaza, 300 N. State Route 89A in Uptown. It is free to attend. The theme of their complementary performance is patriotic in nature. Much of their repertoire consists of marches and patriotic songs, both traditional (e.g. “God Bless America”, “America the Beautiful”) and contemporary (e.g. “Proud To Be An American” by Lee Greenwood, “American Soldier” by Toby Keith).
The 108th Army Band is a 30 piece musical group brought together by their love of music and their desire to serve their country. They perform a mixture of the traditional and the contemporary, from the thrill of a rousing military march to the lilt of folk tunes or to the driving beat of today’s rock. Citizen Soldiers within Arizona’s Army National Guard and based at the Papago Park Military Reservation in Phoenix, they hold full-time professions as musicians, teachers, students, computer programmers, prison guards, small business owners, and construction and postal service workers. In addition to its traditional concert and ceremonial band instrumentation, members of the band also perform regularly in smaller popular, jazz, rock, worship, Dixieland, brass and woodwind ensembles.
This complementary performance is coordinated by Sedona Main Street Program to bring a stirring patriotic-themed concert to our visitors and residents, just in time for Independence Day. Please come out to enjoy and applaud these dedicated men and women.
Free parking is available in Uptown, nearby at Sinagua Plaza, along the roadway of N. State Route 89A, in the Sedona Public Parking Lot at 260 Schnebly Road and in other designated public parking lots. Just follow the free public parking signs.
