U.S. Air Force Band
The U.S. Air Force Band's Summer Concert Series has been part of Washington D.C.'s cultural life for more than a half-century. Throughout the summer months, the band's performing ensembles present free outdoor concerts at historic venues such as the Air Force Memorial. Performances by the band's airmen musicians can be enjoyed at the Air Force Memorial certain Fridays throughout the summer.
The concerts honor the rich history of the Air Force with impeccable demonstrations by the Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team, as well as world-class music, featuring musicians from the Airmen of Note, Concert Band, Max Impact, Strolling Strings, Singing Sergeants and the Ceremonial Brass Drum Line. You’ll hear everything from Glenn Miller's Army Air Forces dance band to more modern pop hits, with a program spanning seven decades of music and a patriotic finale. Take Metro to Pentagon City, and nearby shuttle buses can transport you to security checkpoints for the concert.
