Army Reserve band to perform Friday at HCC

July 16, 2008

The Hagerstown Community College Alumni Association will host the 307th U.S. Army Reserve Band as part of its annual Red, White and Blue Concert Series on Friday at 6:30 p.m., in HCC's Alumni Amphitheater.

The band has been performing for a variety of audiences throughout the Tri-State area for the last 50 years.

The band was first activated in Liberia in 1943 as the 7th Army Service Forces Band, and was renamed the 307th Army Band two months later. After World War II, the band relocated to the Philadelphia area as part of the Organized Reserve, which eventually became the U.S. Army Reserve.

The band consists of 36 musicians from Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania under the acting command of First Sgt. Timothy Pawlik and Field First Sgt. Theodore Traini.

Co-sponsored by the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, this concert is free and is open to the public. For more information, contact HCC Alumni Coordinator Lisa Stewart at 301-790-2800, ext. 346. To learn more about the band, go to http://bands.army.mil.
