Navy Band Southwest opens Summer Serenades Concert Series in Carmel Valley on June 30

The Summer Serenades Concert Series kicks off June 30 with the 45-member Wind Ensemble, the largest element of the Navy Southwest Band. The Navy Southwest Band is new to the concert lineup this year and promises to provide a show that will entertain people of all ages.

The band is one of the Navy’s finest and oldest continuing musical organizations. With over 80 years of support to the San Diego community, the band serves as the musical ambassador for the Navy throughout the southwest. It averages over 500 performances a year, most of which are in support of the Navy’s retention and recruiting initiatives. The band also performs for many different community concert series’ and professional sporting events, and is a regular performer with the San Diego Symphony Summer Pops.

In addition to the patriotic favorites associated with military bands, the concert on Sunday will most likely have some “pop” favorites ranging from the sounds of the big band era to hits by current pop and country artists. The ensemble prides itself in presenting a variety of music sure to please audiences of all ages and tastes.

This concert, along with all of the concerts this year, is sponsored in part by Pardee Homes, Kilroy Realty Corporation and Sampson California Realty.

The concert will start at 5 p.m. and will be held at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center in the amphitheater which is located at 3777 Townsgate Drive. Bring the whole family for a night of live music and fun. Don’t forget your picnic baskets and blankets! For more information on the Summer Serenades, contact the Carmel Valley Recreation Center at 858-552-1616 or check out the Carmel Valley website at to see the full lineup for the summer.

This is the first of six concerts to be held at the Carmel Valley Rec. Center in the amphitheater. The Recreation Council hopes that the community will come out and enjoy our wonderful southern California weather and support the Summer Serenades concert series!

Next up: Back for their second year is Plato Soul who will be performing on July 7. With the amazing vocal talent of KT and their solid rhythm and horn sections, they will again be performing music that will make everyone smile and get up on their feet.
