Gunnery Sgt. Ryan McGeorge
will play with Shoreline Concert Band
The Shoreline Concert Band directed by Ken Noreen presents a very special concert on Tuesday March 8 at the Shorewood High School Performing Arts Center at 7:30pm.

The special guest performer will be Gunnery Sgt. Ryan McGeorge from “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band in Washington D.C. He will also perform solos with the two guest groups, Einstein Middle School Band and the Shorewood High School Wind Ensemble.

Euphonium player Gunnery Sergeant McGeorge joined “The President’s Own” in May 2004. He began his musical instruction at age 8. Upon graduating from Grossmont High School in El Cajon, CA, he attended and graduated from the University of North Texas in Denton.

His appearance here is made possible through a grant from the Shoreline/LFP Arts Council. That organization has enabled the Shoreline Concert Band to have an annual visit by an outstanding soloist like Sgt. McGeorge for the past 18 years.

This concert also features our national known composer in residence, Richard Brown, conducting his own work “Fanfare for a Fallen Soldier.” Mr. Brown is a member of the band’s French Horn section and is a retired music educator.

The theme of the concert “Musically American” will be demonstrated by the band playing “American Salute”, a selection featuring the “Blues” and ending with the most American piece possible, “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

No admission is charged for this very special concert, but donations will be accepted at the door for the band’s scholarship fund that helps fund participation for students in the band.
