The U. S. Air Force Band of Mid-America’s Shades of Blue jazz ensemble will present a concert at Kirkwood Community College’s Ballantyne Auditorium, 6301 Kirkwood Blvd. SW, on Monday at 7 p.m. This is a family-friendly, all-ages event. Admission is free and open to the public.
Shades of Blue is a group of 12 professional musicians whose music inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members, and honors veterans.
During a concert, the audience is just as likely to hear the music of contemporary jazz composers as the classic sounds of Benny Goodman or Maj. Glenn Miller. The band features instrumental and vocal soloists, as well as compositions and arrangements by its own talented members.
