They are the men and women who protect the U.S. by serving in the United States Air Force.

But they are also skilled musicians. And the U.S. Air Force Academy Concert Band is inviting everyone to join them for a series of free holiday concerts.

As a way to say “thank you” for supporting service members, the concert band is performing in the area for free from December 8-11.

All concerts are complimentary but still require tickets.
