Just in time for Veterans Day, the Chattanooga Theatre Centre will host “Flying Home: A Celebration of Chattanooga Veterans,” a free concert performance by the U.S. Air Force Band of Mid-America’s Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble on Friday, November 9, at 7 p.m.
The Shades of Blue Jazz Ensemble is a group of 13 professional enlisted musicians whose music inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members, and honors our country’s veterans.
The ensemble’s broad repertoire ranges from traditional big band jazz to bebop and swing to modern jazz. Concert numbers span the music of contemporary jazz composers to the classic sounds of Count Basie and Glenn Miller. The band features instrumental and vocal soloists, as well as compositions and arrangements by its own talented members.
The concert is open to all ages. Admission is free.
