[Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour Sunday morning so you won't be an hour early!]

"The President's Own" - the United States Marine Band - will pay homage to its 17th Director John Philip Sousa at Congressional Cemetery in Washington, DC, on the 162nd anniversary of his birth.

This is the 50th anniversary of this annual musical tribute, which will include Sousa's "The Stars and Stripes Forever" and "Semper Fidelis." The grave site ceremony and traditional wreath-laying is free and open to the public.

After the concert, join fellow Cornellians (including BRB alumni!) for brunch at Belga Cafe, a short walk from the cemetery. Each attendee is responsible for the cost of his or her own food and drink. Space is limited, so register early!
