The Jazz Ambassadors of the U.S. Army Field Band to Present Concert at Carroll Community College

Westminster, Md., — The internationally-acclaimed Jazz Ambassadors of the U.S. Army Field Band from Washington, D.C. will continue its long history of presenting free public performances when it appears at Carroll Community College on Feb. 7, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in the Theater in the Scott Center. The college is located at 1601 Washington Rd., Westminster, Md., 21157. The concert is free and open to the public.

As the premier touring big band for the United States Army, the Jazz Ambassadors travels thousands of miles each year throughout the nation and abroad. The performers keep the will of the American people behind the members of the Armed Forces and support diplomatic efforts around the world. Since its formation in 1969, the Jazz Ambassadors have appeared in all 50 states and throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

The performers present a diverse program of big band swing, Latin music, contemporary jazz, popular tunes, standards, Dixieland music and patriotic selections. Past performance highlights include the Montreux, North Sea, and the Newport Jazz Festivals. The group has also performed at World War II 50th Anniversary commemorations in the United States and Europe, and at concerts in India and Japan.

Members of the Jazz Ambassadors are selected by a highly competitive audition and they represent some of the finest musical talent in America. The band’s rigorous touring schedule and reputation for excellence has earned them recognition as “The Musical Ambassadors of the Army.”

“It is indeed my pleasure to welcome the Jazz Ambassadors for the first time to Carroll Community College,”
said College President Dr. Faye Pappalardo. “We are pleased to provide this excellent cultural opportunity to residents of Carroll County and the region. The concert is also a fitting tribute to our military personnel around the globe.”
