It is listed as 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. depending on where you look.  Those interested should be on the grounds at 8 pm. This will have people there for the start of the performance. If they are a little early, they may get a chance to see the band march in! Plan to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy this performance.
