The 215th Army Band will perform a free concert at the Mosesian Center for the Arts.

The following announcement was provided by the Mosesian Center for the Arts:

Mosesian Center for the Arts will welcome the 215th Army Band on June 26 as part of the band’s summer concert tour. Based in Fall River, the “Governor’s Own” 215th Army Band of the Massachusetts Army National Guard remains one of the nation’s finest military bands. For more than 60 years, the band has performed throughout New England and the world, bringing the Army’s musical traditions and goodwill to thousands of listeners.

Commander Stephen M. Martins describes the summer concert tour: “In our concerts, we honor both Veterans of our Armed Forces, as well as those serving in the military today. We cannot cerebrate Independence Day without thanking the servicemen and woman that provide us with our blanket of freedom. Throughout our performance, you will see the following musical performance teams: Fife and Drum, New Orleans Brass, Popular Music, and Concert Band playing patriotic music. It is our Duty to tell the Army story, our Honor to recognize the efforts of our Veterans, and our Country that we come together to celebrate.”

Mosesian Arts itself operates on former military property. Its 1894 building was originally a manufacturing shop at the Army’s Watertown Arsenal, which was first established on property along the Charles River in 1816. The area is now on the National Register of Historic Places. When the land and buildings were converted to civilian use in the 1990s and early 2000s, community members advocated for an arts center, turning the “Old Erecting Shop” from armaments to arts when the arts center opened in September 2005.

The 215th Army Band will perform in the Charles Mosesian Theater on Wednesday, June 26, at 7 p.m. Tickets are free, but reservations are encouraged at

Mosesian Center for the Arts is located at 321 Arsenal Street in Watertown, Massachusetts on the Arsenal on the Charles Campus. The venue is easily accessible from I-95/128, Routes 9, 16, 20, and 90 (Mass Pike), and the MBTA.
