THE UNITED STATES ARMY FIELD BAND FROM WASHINGTON, DC
The United States Army Field Band proudly presents the fourth in a series of Concert Band recordings honoring the lives and music of individuals who have made significant contributions to the band repertoire and to music education.
Colonel Finley R. Hamilton, commander and conductor of the band since 1999, writes, “Legacy shares the rich musical heritage of The United States Army Field Band with our listeners. The selections on the recording are a sampling of the large body of literature premiered or commissioned by the band, or written by members of the band’s arranging staff.” The energy inherent in each composition reflects that of the band itself-past, present, and future-as well as that of the creative minds who support military music programs.
Strengthening troop support as they bolster civilian support, bands have played an integral role in the rich heritage of the Army. The dedication and musicianship of the members of The United States Army Field Band represent the professionalism of each American soldier through more than two centuries of proud service.
