Members of THE CONCERT BAND
The largest musical ensemble of The United States Air Force Band is the Concert Band. This world-class symphonic wind ensemble presents over 100 concerts annually and performs a wide variety of repertoire from light classics, popular favorites and instrumental features, to classical transcriptions and original works for the band idiom. Its members represent the best-of-the-best in musical talent and education within the Air Force. Remaining true to the Air Force's pioneering spirit, the Concert Band has established an international reputation as a champion of new works for band, with dozens of world premieres to its credit. In fact, the Band sponsors a biennial competition to ensure that new compositions will continue to be produced.

Performing regularly for the general public in the greater Washington, D.C., area and on biannual community relations tours throughout the United States, The Air Force Concert Band is also in constant demand by many of the world's most highly respected professional musical organizations. Included among these are the American Bandmasters Association, National Band Association, World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles, College Band Directors National Association, Music Educators National Conference and The Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic.

People of every race, color, creed, walk of life and ideology have enjoyed performances by The United States Air Force Band. The Concert Band is proud to represent the United States as a component of The United States Air Force Band, "America's International Musical Ambassadors."
