    SUGAR LOAF-The United States Military Academy Band of West Point recorded their annual CD on the main stage of the Lycian Centre for the Performing Arts in Sugar Loaf last month. This is the fifth year the band has taken advantage of the Lycian's acoustics. Much of the music on the new CD was composed by Perry Goldstein, director of undergraduate studies and musicianship, composition, and theory at Stony Brook University. The limited-production CDs are available only to libraries, music educators, radio and television studios. The United States Military Academy Band is the U.S. Army's oldest active band and the oldest unit at West Point. The band consists of four components: the Concert Band, the Hellcats (the drum and bugle field music unit), the Jazz Knights, and the Support Staff. These combine to form the Marching Band.
