For the City Times
The USAF Band of Mid-America’s Shades of Blue jazz ensemble will present a concert at the Ben Franklin Junior High School Auditorium on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at 7:30 PM.
The concert is a family-friendly event for all ages that is free and open to the public.
The Shades of Blue is a group of 19 professional musicians whose music inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members and honors our country’s veterans.
During a concert, you are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary jazz composers as you would the classic sounds of Count Basie or Maj. Glenn Miller. The band also features instrumental and vocal soloists as well as the compositions and arrangements of its own talented members.
