“Music by the Bay” Annual Summer Concert Series Returns

A special concert honoring the 70th Anniversary of D-Day Friday, June 6 kicks off another season of the annual summer concert series “Music by the Bay” at Fort Monroe. Join us each Thursday at the Gazebo at Continental Park to enjoy the music. This year’s lineup includes performances by the US Air Force Heritage of America Band, US Navy Fleet Forces Band, Hampton Roads Philharmonic and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. New this year are two special Friday concerts. The first is on June 6 by the USAF Heritage of America Concert Band commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day. The second, on June 20, features the Hampton Roads Philharmonic for the Virginia Bicentennial of the War of 1812 Legacy Symposium. Also returning this year is the “Fourth at the Fort” celebration with a performance by the US Navy Fleet Forces Wind Ensemble. And the Virginia Symphony Orchestra will perform for our season finale on August 29 – a can’t-miss event.

Hi Susan, that is a good catch, we’ve edited the first sentence and changed the graphic to highlight the Friday acts too.

Hi,
Maybe I missed it, but I don’t see a time for any of the concerts at Ft. Monroe. Help! Thanks.
