US Air Force Academy Falconaires
a free performance
The Broadway Theater and Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency are excited to announce a FREE, upcoming performance by the US Air Force Academy Falconaires, Tuesday, April 9 at 7:00 pm. While the show is free, guests are asked to reserve a ticket in advance. We expect this performance to fill up quickly so those interested are encouraged to get their tickets right away.
The only musical ensemble which can genuinely trace its heritage back to the American military band is the big band. Made popular by its mainstream appeal during WWII, the big band continues to present a sound and excitement unmatched by any other musical ensemble. A unique and historic component to the heritage of The USAF Academy, the Falconaires have brought the great sounds of big-band jazz to international audiences for over 50 years. In the time-honored tradition of the famous big bands, led by historic figures such as Count Basie, Stan Kenton and Major Glenn Miller, this group of 18 full-time jazz musicians continues this heritage by performing the best jazz of the past, present and future in support of USAF Academy public relations and USAF and USSF recruiting.
Nationally recognized within the jazz and jazz education community, the “Falcs” also proudly promote excellence in the history and performance of America’s national treasure, jazz, by performing at prestigious music conventions and festivals, such as the International Association of Jazz Educators’ International Conference, the Music Educators National Conference, MusicFest Canada, the Montreaux Detroit Jazz Festival and the Telluride Jazz Celebration.
Dedicated to excellence, The USAF Academy Band Falconaires continue to reinforce America’s connection to this genre, jazz – a music and style indigenous to the United States.
The United States Air Force Academy Band is a 60-member organization that performs for millions of people each year in support of United States Air Force Academy community relations and USAF recruiting. As one of two premier bands in the Air Force, The Academy Band performs nearly 500 times annually from coast to coast. In addition to this impressive schedule, the band serves and upholds a demanding performance schedule for The United States Air Force Academy, The United States Space Force, as well as other performances and duties in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region. A tradition of musical excellence, one of the band’s core values, is maintained through rigorous auditions. Each member of the band brings a wealth of educational and professional experience to every performance.
The United States Air Force Academy Band and the Falconaires appear on behalf of the Superintendent, The USAF Academy. All performances are presented free and open to the public.
