Air Force Band to Perform Free Concerts in Louisville
The United States Air Force Academy Band will perform two free public concerts in Louisville Oct. 16 and 17.
The band is one of nine premier military bands in the country. Tracing its roots to 1942 as a group called the "Flying Yanks," which was started by two American airmen in England, the band performs free public concerts throughout the U.S. in suport of Air Force recruiting and Air Force Academy community relations.
The two free public concerts in Louisville will be the only performances in Kentucky. The first will be Sunday Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. at Louisville Memorial Auditorium, 970 South Fourth St. The second will be Monday Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. at the University of Louisville.
