399th Army Band is bringing its holiday celebration back

After two years of cancellations and virtual performances due to the pandemic, the 399th Army Band is bringing its holiday celebration back. The free concert, which is open to the public will be held Thursday, December 15th, at 7 p.m. at Nutter Fieldhouse. Band Commander, Warrant Officer Brian Dorgan, says, “This will be the largest, professionally produced concert that the 399th has ever put on.” Passes will not be required for installation entry, but drivers must produce a valid state-issued driver’s license at the gate and state-issued identification for anyone in the vehicle 18 years of age and older. Visitors will also need to state they are coming on post for the concert upon arrival at the gate to gain entrance. Band Commander Dorgan says, “All of our music performance teams will be featured, including the brass quintet, woodwind quintet, jazz combo, rock band, brass band, big band, and of course the full concert band. The most excellent Waynesville High School Choir will also be featured, and we will collaborate with them at the end for a holiday sing-along.”
