The U.S. Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Band’s Brass Quintet recently performed live on WCVE Music. They were in town to promote this week’s Virginia International Tattoo in Norfolk. Presented annually by the Virginia Arts Festival, each year’s Tattoo is different, from the participating countries to new themes of honor and patriotism.

Based in Hampton Roads, the TRACOC Band's Brass Quintet is among the most requested and used ensemble in the band. As a tool for the Army's public outreach efforts, the ensemble is able to perform in a variety of settings and for a wide range of clients.

Many thanks to the quintet and First Lieutenant/Executive Officer and Conductor Elizabeth Elliott for spending some time performing and chatting about their experiences on my show!

Yours in good music,
