Congratulations to Seaman Matthew E. Fitzsimmons on his selection as the Naval School of Music Student of the Month for November 2020!

Fitzsimmons, a native of #Gaithersburg, #Maryland, enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 2020 to serve his country with his passion for music in a stable, career-based position that he could grow in personally and professionally.

Before joining the U.S. Navy, he attended Southern Methodist University, the University of North Texas, and Catholic University of America. He worked as a teaching artist for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Young Musicians program and performed as a freelance trumpeter based out of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

He has been a #trumpet student in our basic course for three months.

While at the Naval School of Music, he has benefited most from the brass band training. With a mostly classical background, it improved his commercial playing and improvisation. It also removed him from his comfort zone with stage presence, putting him in a position where he rapped for the first time during the final performance.

He holds a Bachelor of Music from Catholic University of America and a Master of Music in Trumpet Performance from Southern Methodist University.

His musical influences are Ryan Anthony, Tom Hooten, Pacho Flores, and Doc Severinsen.

His hobbies include reading, working out, cooking, hiking, and talking about the meaning of life.

"Bravo Zulu" to Seaman Fitzsimmons on this noteworthy accomplishment!!

I just found this again!
So I've been receiving quite a few inquiries in the last few days about the SOM cappy. Here's the official link directly to the manufacturer. I have 2 of them (in case one gets dirty 😆 )

It's a new year ~ are you ready for your School Of Music NAB Little Creek cap? I've just been informed that they're back in stock!
My father, Laurence Benjamin Klipp, USN, MUC (deceased) was a member of Fleet Band to replace USS ARIZONA band on 8 December 1941. Father and band members were encamped on Honolulu away from the attack. Burning question to me has become, Why 8 December not 1 December 1941?, which seems logical. If 1 December, my mother would have become a pregnant widow and my siblings never born. Appreciate any thoughts. Have black and white photo album of that time. After Pearl Harbor, father and fleet band sent by troop ship to Whidby Island, then to NAS Jacksonville for the rest of war. Father was stationed at Navy Receiving Station, Anacostia from 1947 to 1959, when school moved to Little Creek.
End of the year opportunity to get your School of Music cap! have you gotten yours' yet?
AnnWar Productions, a Las Vegas-based production company is proud to announce that on December 7, 2020, it will be releasing A Band to Honor, a documentary film that explores the never-before-told story of the USS Arizona Band, a group of 21 Navy Musicians who trained together, lived together, performed together, and—on December 7, 1941—died together. A "sneak peek" of A Band to Honor will be available for viewing on December 7, 1941. The project will be presented on EVENTIVE, a high-quality virtual cinema platform designed to give viewers a theater-like experience from the comfort of their own homes. There will be a limited number of tickets available for this sneak peek, so those interested should pre-order their tickets as soon as possible. Pre-order tickets are now available through our host platform: https://watch.eventive.org/annwarproductions Or through a link offered by the Pacific Historic Parks in Honolulu, Hawaii. https://www.pacifichistoricparks.org A Band to Honor will "unlock" for viewing beginning December 7, 2020, at 7:48 a.m. Hawaii Standard Time (9:48 a.m. Pacific Standard Time and 12:48 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) coincides with the exact time the Japanese began their attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. You can pre-order a ticket now, but the film will not "unlock" until December 7th. Viewers will have access to the film for 48 hours. For more information, please feel free to contact the producers at [email protected] * A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Pacific Historic Parks and AmVets Hawaii.
