Navy Band Great Lakes' Mission
"Pride in Service" has been the theme for Navy Band Great Lakes for more than a
century. From 1911, when the band first formed, to 1917, when Lieutenant
Commander John Philip Sousa served as Bandmaster, to today's Director,
Lieutenant Patrick K. Sweeten, our music represents the pride and professionalism
that is synonymous with the United States Navy.
Serving Commander, Naval Service Training Command's mission of transforming
volunteers into 21st century Sea Warriors, Navy Band Great Lakes performs
ceremonies to honor recruits, Sailors, and their families. Also, as the Navy's
"Ambassadors to the Midwest," Navy Band Great Lakes performs for hundreds
of thousands yearly. We provide musical support for communities of all sizes as
well as supporting Navy recruiting in a nine state area of responsibility
stretching from Michigan to North Dakota.
