    The National Headquarters of The Salvation Army in the United States, located in Alexandria, Virginia, just across the Potomac River from the Nation's Capital, was the venue for the celebration of 80 years of continuous service for the National Capital Band. 117 delegates, some traveling from as far as California, the Caribbean, and Sweden, gathered for a Reunion Weekend celebrating the ministry and music of the band over its long history. In addition to the Reunion Sessions held at the National Headquarters, the weekend also featured an Anniversary Festival concert by the National Capital Band on Saturday evening, and a Reunion Concert featuring a Reunion Band and Chorus, on Sunday afternoon.
