The US Air Force Concert Band And Singing Sergeants – Friday, April 6

It’s not everyday that you get to see a full military concert band and chorus—for free, no less. This Friday, April 6, from 7pm to 9pm at the Saratoga Springs City Center, the Spa City’s in for a rare treat, when the US Air Force Concert Band and Singing Sergeants—two of the USAF’s performing groups—swing into town from Washington, DC, and put on a free concert (though it’s free, you still have to register in advance here).

The Concert Band features 53 active duty members, including five trumpeters, five French horn players and a gaggle of other woodwinds, brass and percussion. They even have a harpist! The Singing Sergeants are a bit more exclusive, featuring 23 active duty Airmen, who perform more than 200 concerts a year. First founded in 1943 as a male-only chorus, the group integrated in 1973 and now includes both men and women.

The groups are stationed at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in DC, and as noted on their website, “[honor] those who have served, [inspire] American citizens to heightened patriotism and service, and positively [impact] the global community on behalf of the U.S. Air Force and the United States of America.”
