The City of Beaumont and Lamar University invite you to experience the United States Air Force Band for free at their upcoming concert on Monday, April 25. The event will take place at the Julie Rogers Theatre at 7:00 p.m.
The Airmen of Note is the premier jazz ensemble of the United States Air Force. Stationed at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., it is one of six musical ensembles that comprise The U.S. Air Force Band. Created in 1950 to continue the tradition of Major Glenn Miller’s Army Air Corps dance band, the current band consists of 18 active duty Airmen musicians including one vocalist.
Through the years, the Airmen of Note has presented its own brand of big band jazz as well as more contemporary forms of jazz to audiences via annual tours across the United States, deployments around the world and local performances throughout metropolitan Washington, D.C. For smaller, more intimate venues, the Airmen of Note Combo and various individual musicians perform apart from the full band to support military and civilian ceremonial and diplomatic events.
As part of The U.S. Air Force Band, The Airmen of Note honors those who have served, inspires American citizens to heightened patriotism and service, and positively impacts the global community on behalf of the U.S. Air Force and the United States.
While the concert is free, tickets are required and may be picked up at the Beaumont Civic Center Box Office (701 Main Street) from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and at Swicegood Music Company (3685 College Street) from 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
