The United States Coast Guard Concert Band
Phone: 281-FREE-FUN or 281-373-3386
The United States Coast Guard Band makes its debut at Miller! To honor the Coast Guard’s more than two centuries of service to our nation, the band performs an evening of patriotic selections, classical works, and jazz standards.
The United States Coast Guard Band is the premier band representing the United States Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security. The 55-member ensemble is based at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.
In addition to performing concert tours around the nation, the Band has also played in the former Soviet Union, Canada, England, and Japan. In 2008, the Coast Guard Band became the first premier American military band to perform a concert tour of Japan. In addition, the U.S. Coast Guard Brass Quintet and Saxophone Quartet performed throughout Taiwan to great acclaim in 2009 and 2010. Concerts include a broad spectrum of music, from wind ensemble classics to swinging jazz charts.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
