Asbury-Crestwood United Methodist church is honored to present Quintette 7 of West Point for the third annual Veterans Day concert of its professional concert series, Music at Asbury. Quintette 7 is a one-of-a-kind sextet of three rhythm players (piano, bass, drums) and three horns (trumpet, clarinet, saxophone) drawn from the personnel of the West Point Concert Band and the band’s Field Music Group, The Hellcats. This unique ensemble will play popular favorites as well as classics with a mix of jazz and patriotism that will keep your foot tapping. In honor of Veterans Day, the concert will conclude with “The Armed Forces Medley” and Quintette 7’s own arrangement of “On Brave Ol’ Army Team!”
Comprised of graduates from America’s finest music schools, the professional musicians of the West Point Band provide world-class music and support to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets and to serve as ambassadors of the United States Military Academy and the Army for local, national, and international communities. Quintette 7 performs for official military functions, social occasions, formal concerts, public service and educational youth clinics and concerts.
