Date Posted: 2011-09-09

There will be plenty of music in the air next Saturday evening as the III Marine Expeditionary Force Band joins hands –and instruments—with the 15th Band from the Japan Ground Self Defense Force for a concert.

The 16th Annual Combined Concert of the two military bands is a one-of-a-kind event, the only joint concert III MEF plays with the 15th Band on Okinawa. The event is free to the public Saturday evening, September 17th, at the Okinawa Civic Hall in Okinawa City. Tickets are required for the concert, and are available by calling DSN 645-3919.

Under the batons of Chief Warrant Officer 2 Stephen B. Glove of III MEF and 1st Lt. Naofumi Kawano of the 15th Band, the 7 p.m. concert will feature a variety of contemporary and traditional numbers. The concert will be in three parts, with III MEF Band playing, then the JGSDF Band, and then a joint performance. It’s one of the most popular events by the III MEF Band, one of five annual concerts the band performs in Japan.

Others include a Spring Concert, a Christmas Concert, and a Marching Performance with other Japanese Military Bands at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo. This is the only joint concert with the Japanese Ground Self Defense Force Band.
