The Marine Band at Twilight in The Park Concerts: Amazing

Just wanted to let everyone in San Diego know about the free concerts in Balboa Park.

During the summer they take place at the Organ Pavilion every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6:30 to 7:30.

Everyone is welcome and there are bands and groups for everyone but one band that participates every year is the Marine Band and this year they were particularly amazing--it was an honor to see them.

They played everything from Stars and Strips to their own version of rock--then jumped to Tchaikovsky and America the Beautiful.

The crowd was on their feet with applause and standing ovations.

They were so patriotic..........

After the show the band invited folks up to tell them about their military experiences and what they thought of the performance.

It was so engaging.

It is a lovely evening activity for a walk in the park, and there is plenty of space for kids, dogs, dancing and picnics.

This is a good and lucky thing about San Diego--and free.
