The 81st season of the U.S. Army’s free concert series begins June 6, 2013 and will continue most Thursday evenings through Aug. 29.

Music Under the Stars at Magnolia Park is presented by the U.S. Army TRADOC Band and features various configurations of that ensemble. The concerts take place 7 p.m. at Magnolia Park at Fort Eustis in Newport News. Concerts are FREE and open to the public.
