OXFORD – The United States Military Academy Concert Band of West Point will perform a concert at the Oxford Academy High School, in the Performing Arts Auditorium, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. This very special performance, by one of the finest military concert bands in the world, was arranged by Oxford resident, Gene Rood, to kick-off the Village of Oxford Bicentennial Celebration.
Gene Rood is a professional engineer and the owner of Chenango Engineering. Prior to starting his firm, however, he worked at West Point as chief of master planning, chief of operations and management, and chief of environmental management. Gene has made arrangements with West Point to have the, 48-member, U.S. Military Academy Concert Band come to Oxford and play for the community.
