You have probably seen these groups on TV or maybe even attended one of their concerts. If you are former military and retired in this area, you might even have had one of these groups play your retirement ceremony. Just who are these musicians? Are they really military personnel? Where do they come from? Learn all about these outstanding musicians and listen to some musical examples of their groups in this class presented by Sergeant Major (retired) Walter Todenhoft, formerly with The United States Army Band, “Pershing’s Own.”
Walter Todenhoft is from Radford, Virginia, and was a member of the Army’s Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps from 1982-1984 and then in the United States Army Band, “Pershing’s Own,” from 1984 until 2012. He holds a master’s degree in clarinet performance from the University of Maryland and was a band director in Montana and Roanoke, Virginia, before joining the Army.
