The 369th Experience: Continuing the Legacy is a historic series of global music programs designed to acknowledge, educate, and preserve the legacy of The 369th U.S. Infantry regiment band and soldiers.
The 369th Experience re-creates the original band with African American and Puerto Rican music students from HBCUs and other universities across the country.
Continuing the Legacy and Forward March for Freedom will bring 65 HBCU students to the DC area on June 13-20, 2022 to participate in celebrity-conducted master classes, a panel discussion, and time travel concert performances at the John F. Kennedy Center in observance of Black Music Month and Juneteenth.
A Musical Salute to African American Military Heritage
The goal is to continue to honor the original band members, educate new audiences and students about the band’s importance, and foster a dialogue that acknowledges and respects their contributions to the US military and music around the world.
