The unit is divided into small groups known as Musical Performance Teams (MPTs). The musical diversity of these M.P.T.s ranges from pop music, small classical quintets, Fife and Drum Corps, New Orleans Brass Band, to a vocal quintet which performs at major sporting events.
This program is presented as part of the commemoration of the Boston Harbor Islands’ 25th anniversary as a National Park and 50th anniversary as a State Park.
