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. These performances are part of a 12-day tour through Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
“After the last few years of pandemic isolation, I’m really looking forward to traveling and connecting with live audiences across the United States once again,” said Senior Master Sergeant Matt Nudell, who will be playing trombone during the tour. “I’m also honored to stand in front of this incredible ensemble whose members represent the best of the United States Air Force.”
The United States Air Force Band honors those who have served, inspires American citizens to heightened patriotism and service and connects with the global community on behalf of the U.S. Air Force and the United States of America.
