Last year, the New Mexico National Guard’s 44th Army Band performed a special Fourth of July concert at the New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial in Albuquerque. The band played traditional ceremonial music as well as performances by the saxophone quartet and the brass quintet. In addition, the first ever Military Mariachi Band performed for the audience.
The United Veteran’s Council is pleased to announce that the 44th Army Band will again present a Fourth of July concert at the Memorial. The concert will be in the Memorial Amphitheater and will begin at 5:00 PM and last for approximately one hour. We suggest you arrive early to facilitate parking. Also, you are advised to bring chair pads, lawn chairs, or blankets for your personal comfort during the concert.
For this special event, the Memorial Visitor Center will be open and visitors are welcome to view the displays therein.
