VE Day Commemoration

by Master Sgt. Andy Axelrad

4/30/2015 - Washington, D.C. -- On Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9, the Airmen of Note will perform two concerts in commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day (VE Day). On May 8, 1945, the Allied forces accepted Germany's unconditional surrender, thus ending the Second World War in Europe after five and a half years of devastating fighting. Fittingly, the Note will be donning "pinks and greens" uniforms for the performances and delving into the band's expansive library of Glenn Miller chestnuts to pay proper homage and celebrate "the greatest generation" with true authenticity! Friday's one-hour concert begins at 10:30 a.m. on the grounds of the beautiful WWII Memorial at the National Mall.
