Established in 1945, the U.S. Fleet Forces (USFF) Band, known as "The Finest of the Fleet," serves as the musical ambassador for Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command, in Norfolk, Virginia. Under the direction of Lt. Gregory Fritz, the USFF Band is comprised of 45 Navy musicians that perform in a variety of ensembles and performs for more than 400 engagements annually. Its primary mission is to support Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command, by providing musical support for military ceremonies and events, foreign dignitaries, and Navy community outreach engagements throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and Ohio River Valley areas of the U.S. The band also regularly deploys to Central and South America. 

This event is free and open to the public. For the safety of everyone attending, Pro-Art and the USFF band request patrons to wear a mask for the duration of the performance.

Pro-Art partners with a variety of venues, therefore individuals with mobility issues are encouraged to call 276-376-4520 or email the Pro-Art office at pro-art@uvawise.edu to make arrangements for parking.
