Bourgeois, former conductor of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band of Washington, D.C. The group met for many years in Washington, D.C. and also in New Orleans, Louisiana. It met most recently in Boston, Massachusetts, presenting a concert in historical Fanueil Hall under the director of Col. Jason Fettig, the present conductor of the United States Marine Band.
