FORT HUACHUCA — When one thinks of Christmas, music is always involved, said the 62nd U.S. Army Band commander.
“No other season is more identified with music than Christmas,” Chief Warrant Officer Tom Bauer said Monday.
In a room near his office on Fort Huachuca, some band members were packing up after rehearsing, while in another room, members of the band’s jazz combo were practicing some of the music they will play at a number of venues before Dec. 20.
People who believe all an Army band does is march to music in any number of ceremonies — such as changes-of-command, retirements or other functions — may be technically correct, but Bauer said there is more to soldier musicians than playing marches.
