The nation’s founding document, the U.S. Constitution, is celebrated on September 17, and Colonial Williamsburg will again mark the occasion with its fifth annual “To Support and Defend” event.
The open-air concert includes music and Colonial Williamsburg interpreters who will personify George Washington and James Madison. Sponsored by Merchants Square and Colonial Williamsburg, the event features a combined ensemble composed of members of the USAF Heritage of America Band and the USA Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Band, playing works by eminent American composers.
The Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums also will perform.
The program begins at 7 p.m. in Merchants Square. Rain Date is Wednesday, Sept. 18. (Please check merchantssquare.org for weather-related information, or call 757-565-8889 for more information.) Spectators are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket. No reservations or tickets are required.
