The U.S. Air Force Concert Band and Singing Sergeants are two of the six performing ensembles within The United States Air Force Band, the premier musical organization of the U.S. Air Force. Stationed at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., The U.S. Air Force Band honors those who have served, inspires American citizens to heightened patriotism and service, and positively impacts the global community on behalf of the U.S. Air Force and the United States of America.

Highlights for the Concert Band include performing in the 2012 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the 2013 Presidential Inauguration events, as well as the 2014 & 2015 American Bandmasters Association conventions. Last November, the Singing Sergeants performed with Grammy award winning vocalist Carrie Underwood as part of HBO’s “Concert for Valor,” which was broadcast live on Veterans Day. For the past two years, The U.S. Air Force Band received worldwide exposure by creating holiday flash mob videos which were viewed by more than 30 million people on YouTube and were featured in major worldwide news networks.
