The United States Air Force Concert Band and Singing Sergeants from Washington, D.C. will present a free concert at Baylor University on Wednesday, October 24, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Concert Hall, located within the Glennis McCrary Music Building. The band’s Commander and Conductor is Colonel Larry H. Lang, an El Paso native who has had a distinguished twenty-nine-year career as an Air Force bandleader.
The U.S. Air Force Concert Band and Singing Sergeants are two of the six performing ensembles within the United States Air Force Band, the premier musical organization of the U.S. Air Force. Stationed at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Air Force Band 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 of America.
In addition to daily tour performances, members of the Concert Band and Singing Sergeants also mentor students in local communities through the Advancing Innovation through Music (AIM) educational outreach program. According to Colonel Lang, “Our AIM program has been an outstanding success, allowing us to reach over 100,000 students in the Washington, D.C., area over the last five years with music clinics, side-by-side performances, and rehearsals with school groups and professional music demonstrations. As we tour across the nation, performing our community outreach mission, AIM fills a vital role in helping us connect the Air Force to our communities.”
This concert by the United States Air Force Concert Band and Singing Sergeants from Washington, D.C., is free of charge and open to the public, but tickets are required for admission. They may be obtained, during regular business hours, in the front lobby of the Glennis McCrary Music Building. For ticket information, call 254-710-3571.
