The Beat of a Different Drummer-Documentary

telly_site_bugs_silver

This is the award-winning story of America’s last all-female military band - the 14th Army Women’s Army Corps Band. The other military branches fielded all-female bands, but the WAC Band survived longer than any. Through four decades, the WAC Band offered a woman the rare chance to have a career as a professional musician.

The standards were very high for WAC Band members. They were not only elite musicians, they were representatives of the United States Army. Their audiences were diverse - they marched out recruits for morning drills; they performed for enthusiastic audiences in small town America; and they played for presidents.

The struggle for equal rights has been a familiar burden for women throughout history. But these women chose to follow their own dreams. They marched down a road that would usher in a new era for women in America. They marched to the beat of a different drummer.

Special Feature: Complete 2004 WAC Band reunion concert, their first performance in 28 years!
