The U.S. Army Field Band eNewsletter, October 2017
FALL TOURS IN THE UPPER MIDWEST
It’s officially fall, and The U.S. Army Field Band's Fall Tour is almost here! Join the Concert Band, Soldiers' Chorus, and Jazz Ambassadors as they bring the Army story to Chicago, Green Bay, Milwaukee, Des Moines, Omaha, and everywhere in between.
The Army Field Band's concert tours are organized by the unit's Operations Team. The success of each performance relies as much on Operations as on the performers, and in turn, much of Operation's success relies on concert sponsors — those organizations and community assist the Army Field Band in presenting tour performances.
A long-time sponsor of the Army Field Band, Mr. Bill Clinger of Findlay, Ohio has been sponsoring Army Field Band concerts for more than 15 years, featuring all of the band's performing components. He looks forward to having the Concert Band & Soldiers' Chorus back this fall. "People just love them," said Clinger. "It doesn't seem to matter when it is or where they're playing, we always have a great crowd for them."
Clinger went on to describe the impact Army Field Band concerts have on the community. "Their impact comes from the patriotic music, and the military connection that we don't get here on a regular basis. We've had tremendous support this year. We're bringing in new sponsors and we're looking forward to the concert."
The Concert Band & Soldiers' Chorus will perform in the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts in Findlay, Ohio on Sunday, November 5 at 3:00 p.m. To find an Army Field Band performance near you, or to learn more about concert sponsorship, visit ArmyFieldBand.com.
