6/29/2012 - Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, D.C. -- This summer The United States Air Force Band has a new performing venue--the National World War II Memorial. Situated between the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial, it is an inspiring and picturesque performance site in the heart of Washington, D.C.
The Airmen of Note performed there on June 16 to an enthusiastic crowd. The Concert Band and Singing Sergeants presented an appropriately-themed program honoring heroes of "the greatest generation" on June 27.
Master Sgt. Brian McCurdy who performed a medley of swing tunes on the June 27 concert said, "It's always a thrill to step in front of the band as a featured soloist. Performing "Benny Goodman: Memories of You" at the World War II Memorial was one of the most memorable highlights of my 15-year career."
There will be one more concert at the WWII Memorial this summer on Aug. 29 at 6 p.m. featuring the Airmen of Note. We hope to see you there!
