Concert was brilliant and stunning

The United States Navy Concert Band of Washington, D.C. recently chose Everett to be the venue for its once every five years presentation. We are proud!

It was a brilliant and stunning concert! What was really the best about it was how beautiful and straightforward the music was played. Minus “pushing boundaries” using “cutesy gimmicks,” being sooo “out there.” Just plainly vibrant classic music played by the Navy’s finest.

I have especially high praise for the vocalist. He sang “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” in a rendition synonymous between opera and pop. His was the best I have ever heard! It changed my life!
