The U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar is pleased to announce that the U.S. Eighth Army Band will perform a concert at Chinggis Khaan Square on Tuesday June 30, 2015 at 6 p.m. The performance is open to the public and free of charge!
The Band is also scheduled for additional performances at closed events; one of the performances is a joint concert with the Mongolian Armed Forces Band.
The U.S. Eighth Army Band is in Mongolia to celebrate the July 4th U.S. Independence Day and the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The passage and implementation of the ADA changed the face of American society in numerous ways, enhancing the independence, full participation, inclusion, and equality of opportunity for Americans with disabilities.
The Eighth Army Band began its proud history of service to the U.S. on July 1, 1916. The Band’s highly trained Soldier-Musicians perform musical styles from traditional military marches to chamber music, as well as the latest country, pop, rock, and jazz tunes.
The band members are delighted to collaborate with the Mongolian Armed Forces Band and look forward to seeing everyone at their performances.
We invite everyone to come and experience the uplifting music of these two military bands!
