Live Outdoor Concert: 5th Michigan Regiment Band
Thursday, June 25
07:00 PM - 08:30 PM
The 5th Michigan Regiment Band, the official State of Michigan Sesquicentennial Civil War Band brings history alive with the historical recreation of a Civil War regimental “field band” consisting of musicians attired in uniforms patterned after the originals, color guard, and support personnel in 1860s period civilian attire. The band’s repertoire of pre-1865 compositions is performed on antique and replica saxhorns and wood rope tension drums. Performances include music and narration describing the music, instruments, attire, flags, and customs of the area. Perfect for the entire family. Please bring your own lawn chair or blanket.
