The U.S. Air Force Band of Mid-America’s Concert Band will present a concert in Oak Ridge next week.
The concert is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday, July 27, in the Oak Ridge High School Performing Arts Auditorium at 1450 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
This is a family-friendly, all-ages event, a press release said. The concert is presented in partnership with Explore Oak Ridge and Oak Ridge Schools.
“The United States Air Force Band of Mid-America Concert Band represents the professionalism and excellence found every day throughout the Air Force,” the press release said. “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 July, they will be presenting music in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing as well as vocal selections from ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ ‘The Wiz,’ and ‘Wicked’ in celebration of the 80th anniversary of the ‘Wizard of Oz.'”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
