Earlier in the day, the brass section of the band will appear at Billy Creek Village at noon to recreate its 1858 appearance at the Lincoln-Douglas Debates in Illinois.
In those days, the band was known as the Brazil Cornet Band and was an all-brass ensemble. Three years later, the musicians enlisted en masse in the Union Army. Some performed as army musicians while others became infantrymen.
The Billy Creek performance will include music by Stephen Foster and a host of Civil War era favorites.
T.J. Sneddon will appear as Abraham Lincoln.
The Sunday night performance at Forest Park will feature flag waving marches "E Pluribus Unum," by Jewell, "The Dauntless Battalion," by Sousa, "From Tropic to Tropic," by Alexander, "Stepping Along," by Goldman, and "Emblem of Unity," by Richards.
Concert selections will include "The Homefront: Musical Memories from World War II," arranged by Christiansen, "Billy Sunday's Successful Songs," by Henry Fillmore, "Easter Monday on the White House Lawn," by Sousa, "South Pacific," arranged by Lang, and "Armed Forces Salute," arranged by Lowden.
