The 23rd Army Band of the Utah National Guard will continue their 2011 Summer Concert Series with a special concert in Castle Dale at the Castle Dale Fair Grounds. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. on July 7 and the concert is free, no ticket required.

The 23rd Army Band has been performing their Summer Concert Series through Northern Utah and Eastern/Central Utah during the summer months of 2011.

The Utah National Guard's, 23rd Army Band, has a rich and wonderful history as an internationally distinguished military band. As Utah's premier military music unit, the 23rd Army Band has been providing music for military ceremonies for more than 87 years.

In the summer of 2010, the 23rd Army Band performed a tour to the Kingdom of Morocco in Northern Africa. The band astounded audiences all across the historic city of Kenitra, Morocco, which played a major role in the Allied forces taking back Africa in the height of WWII.

The 23rd Army Band has been broadcast internationally and has featured guest artist including the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Alex Boyé, Jenny Jordan Frogley, acclaimed violinist Jenny Oaks Baker, The Utah Symphony and U.S. Army Field Band.

The 23rd Army Band has played for Presidents, Senators, Congressmen and Heads of State. Each year the Band performs for thousands of people across the state of Utah and the United States, giving clinics and concerts for schools, performing at civic functions, marching in parades, and providing music for military dances, changes of command, and pass-in-reviews.

The 23rd Army Band is more than just a group of musician, but also a highly trained group of U.S. Army Soldiers that maintains a readiness with a full training schedule including an annual weapons qualification, a semi-annual Physical Training test, basic soldier training, combat readiness, and many other skills required as a Soldier and a member of the Utah National Guard.

The band is staffed by some of the state's finest musicians. During the day, these citizen soldiers work as accountants, engineers, emergency responders, music producers, doctors, teachers, mothers, and many more. Many also perform in other musical organizations around the state. When they come together, their musical talent is considerable.
