That is how Maj. Brian Dix introduced “The Commandant’s Own” U.S. Marine Drum & Bugle Corps July 4, at Avery Fisher Hall. The “Star Spangled Celebration” concert featured 80 Marines under the direction of Dix and the New York Philharmonic led by Bramwell Tovey, performing for a crowd of nearly 3,000. Key resident Harold Ronson, a World War II veteran, was there courtesy of his daughter Norma Ronson Koppel, who also has a residence on the Key.
