I found out that the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts in Milwaukee is presenting the Air Force Band of Mid-America in a free concert on Thursday April 19th in Uihlein Hall at 7:30. The Band is touring throughout Wisconsin and one of the stops is the Marcus Center. Great news for us. We were able to hear the woodwind quintet from the Band perform earlier in the year, and the concert was wonderful. I'm looking forward to hearing the full band.
Here's what the Marcus Center writes about the group. The Air Force Band of Mid-America Concert Band represents the professionalism and excellence found every day throughout the Air Force. This diverse, 45-piece ensemble’s repertoire ranges from symphonic band masterworks, to traditional marches, to modern compositions, to pops and jazz. During a concert, you are likely to hear stirring works from contemporary composers as well as the familiar sounds of John Philip Sousa or Major Glenn Miller. The band also features talented vocal soloists, performing a wide variety of popular, classical, and patriotic selections.
This is an all ages, free event. Due to the popularity of this concert, tickets will be required for attendance. You can pick up tickets from the Marcus Center Box Office at 929 North Water St, Milwaukee, WI, or order tickets via phone at 414-273-7206. Also, E-Tickets are also available if you use this site.
See you there!
