The United States Air Force Band of Mid-America Concert Band represents the professionalism

and excellence found every day throughout the Air Force. This diverse, 45-piece ensemble’s

repertoire ranges from symphonic band masterworks, to traditional marches, to modern

compositions, to pops and jazz. During a concert, you are likely to hear stirring works from

contemporary composers as well as the familiar sounds of John Philip Sousa or Major Glenn

Miller. The band also features talented vocal soloists, performing a wide variety of popular,

classical, and patriotic selections.

This ensemble primarily performs free civic outreach and recruiting concerts for audiences

throughout the Midwest, playing more than 100 engagements each year. In its broader travels,

the band has performed in New York City, Philadelphia, Seattle, the Gulf Coast, Germany, the

Netherlands, Costa Rica, Barbados, Grenada, Guatemala, Venezuela, Bolivia, and the Azores.

Each year, band members perform live before hundreds of thousands of people, and for millions

more on television and radio broadcasts.
