Established by an Act of Congress in 1798, the U.S. Marine Band is America’s oldest professional musical organization. Its primary mission is unique-to provide music for the president of the United States and the commandant of the United States Marine Corps. Now in its third century, the Marine Band continues a tradition of excellence that earned the title “The President’s Own” from President Thomas Jefferson.
