  1. It would be great if the United States was to create a symphony "band" like this, comprised of the best of our five branches (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy) and hold concerts like this on Patriotic National holidays, and travel the country and internationally ! Oops, forgot about the "Space Force"…sorry 🙄 (I don't think they even have a band yet 🤔)

  2. Thank you for watching the grand beautiful rendition of the finest military bands
    I have ever seen in my life.
    My heart is continually exciting during performance of bands.

  3. Wait ……….. Philip Mountbatten is German, changing his last name to marry the queen!😆 He’s not English! That’s where Harry got the Nazi uniform!!

  4. The only thing that spoilt the opening of this concert was seeing that whinging bitch Megan markle. The music was excellent as the marines have the best musicians in the armed forces.

  5. The British sing their national anthem, sincerely and with passion and honesty. Splendid! Here in Germany this is unthinkable, not even the German national football team is able to sing the German national anthem. But, what a wonderful concert and wonderful show this is! Great! Die Briten singen ihre Nationalhymne, aufrecht und mit Leidenschaft und Ehrlichkeit. Herrlich! Hier in Deutschland ist das undenkbar, nicht einmal die deutsche Fußballnationalmannschaft ist in der Lage, die deutsche Nationalhymne zu singen. Dies ist ein wunderschönes Konzert und eine sehr schöne Show, toll!

  6. Why did they wave the Union Flag for 'There Will Always be an England'? This is exactly what alienates Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, they do not own that flag! Should have used St George's cross for that song and they would do well to remember that other home nations lost their lives in battle!!

  7. The brass neck on those two could rival the whole of the brass section of the orchestra! Standing there singing the National Anthem whilst plotting to bring down the Royal Family, couldn't make it up!

  8. Reviewing that video numerous times, it is pretty clear that there was a lot of affection and adulation for Harry and Meghan among the concert-goers, which I would expect would translate to the population as a whole. That being the case, one has to wonder how far wrong things went inside the royal family for them to walk away.

  9. So much owed by so many to so few.
    I bow my head, I close my eyes and I give my gratitude to all Military personnel… Past, Present and Future. Thank you to every one of you x
