New London — The U.S. Coast Guard Band's Movie Madness Concert Returns at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19, in Leamy Concert Hall at the Coast Guard Academy.

The program includes music from “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings,” as well as performances of “Steal Me, Sweet Thief,” “Barnum and Bailey's Favorite” and “Rhapsody in Blue.”

This event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required. The academy, at 15 Mohegan Ave., is handicapped-accessible. All visitors to the academy must present a valid state-issued photo ID. For more information, visit www.uscg.mil/band or call (860) 701-6826.
