Ceremonial Band

The SHAPE International Band's Ceremonial Band is a 12-20 piece military ceremonial ensemble. Composed of the premiere conservatory musicians from military bands across the NATO Alliance, the Ceremonial Band regularly performs for heads of state as well as the senior leadership of NATO and the European Union. The band features trumpets, trombones, saxophones, clarinets, piccolo, and battery percussion and is scalable depending on the performance space available, volume desired, and size of venue, from a full 20-piece band to a solo bugler. Repertoire for this ensemble typically includes marches from Sousa, Fillmore, Lithgow, & Goldman as well as the NATO and EU anthems, various Alliance member national anthems and military service/regimental songs, and the SHAPE Fanfare.
