    >> Fairfax Band to Play in France
         for D-Day Ceremonies in June

    Members of the City of Fairfax Band Association are headed to France June 1-8 to perform in Normandy and Paris.  In Normandy, the band will provide the music for one of the year’s most significant observances of D-Day (June 6, 1944): the commemoration and wreath laying at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, which overlooks historic Omaha Beach.

    Also, the band will perform in ceremonies at the Brittany American Cemetery and Memorial in Saint-James, France; for a D-Day musical salute and parade in the town of Sainte-Mère-Église; and will cap off their trip with a concert in Paris.
