Our Story

The West Point Band is the Army's oldest active duty band, founded on the Beautiful and historic grounds of the United States Military Academy in 1817. The band traces its lineage to fifers and drummers who were part of Continental Army units at West Point during the time of the American Revolution. Officially established on June 8, 1817, the West Point Band celebrated its bicentennial last year. Although many changes have occurred over the years, music continues to be an aspect of daily life for the cadets and Soldiers at the academy. Today, the band continues to inspire and motivate the next generation of the Army’s leaders, as well as serving as musical ambassadors for the Army to the nation.

What People Say About Us

"But the real surprise came in Morton Gould's Symphony No. 4 ("West Point"), a work written for the West Point band in 1952 and performed by it here under Colonel Holtan... A somber first movement, "Epitaphs," gives way to the second and last, "Marches." At one point a marching machine, a wooden contraption, is deployed to depict the clomping of multitudes, and the effect was deeply moving... However in or out of fashion patriotism may be at the moment, this concert held an almost full house in thrall."

"I first heard a West Point music performance in 1974 when my cousin (Edward M. Sanders) graduated with David Patraeus. Then last year, I had the opportunity to hear West Point perform at my daughter's college, Marywood University, in a tribute to veterans. Their performance was absolutely spectacular !!  Their program was patriotic perfection and their musicianship was absolute musical mastery.

Listening to the West Point Band play these powerful musical pieces and interact as they practiced, I learned how to become a better leader.
