Air Force Band's Free Show at the Majestic Theatre



Support our troops this Veteran's Day with a bang. The United States Air Force Band of the West, made up of America’s peacekeepers, will be performing a colorful array of USA’s greatest composers. As an extra treat, the USAF Band of the West will be joined by the Texas Children's Choir.

The concert will feature the sweeping grandeur of silver screen composer John Williams (the master behind the scores of Stephen Spielberg classics), 1944 Oscar winner Carmen Dragon, patriotic composer John Philip Sousa (the man behind the Official March of the United States Marine Corps), Grammy winning jazz composer Major Glenn Miller, Leroy Anderson (famed composer of Christmas classic Sleigh Ride and the only Englishman on the line up) and Gustav Holst (composer of the Planets, a space odyssey of epic proportions). 

Tonight's free show at the Majestic Theatre is at capacity, and no more tickets are available. Doors open at 6 p.m.
