CANCELLED! The Red, White & Blue Holiday Concert
Auburn Performing Arts Center, 702 4th Street NE
We regret to inform you that 133rd Army Band of the Washington National Guard has CANCELLED the Red, White & Blue Holiday Show set for Sunday, December 5 at 2pm at the Auburn Performing Arts Center.
The City of Auburn partners with the Army Band to bring the Auburn community this free show on an annual basis. Unfortunately, they have notified us that they are no longer able to perform their holiday concerts that were scheduled this weekend in both Yelm and Auburn.
Here is their message related to the cancellation:
“Based on the uncertainty of the Continuing Resolution going into drill weekend, National Guard leadership made the decision yesterday to execute a virtual drill for December. While this affects the holiday concert, the decision was also made to ensure that our National Guard soldiers and their families, some that live across the state, were not traveling without assurances that they would be getting paid and have lodging in the event that federal budget agreement was not reached. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to playing in the city of Auburn again in 2022. - Joseph F. Siemandel, State Public Affairs Officer, Washington National Guard”
