According to the Statesboro Herald, the internationally acclaimed United States Army Field Band of Washington, D.C. will be giving a free performance Friday, October 23, at Statesboro High School.

The Statesboro Herald sponsored musical event will start at 7 p.m. and a four ticket pick up limit has been enacted due to seating restraints. Historically, the U.S. Army Field Band is composed of two parts: the Concert Band and the Soldiers’ Chorus. Those two components together comprises a 94 member ensemble that present joint concerts, and perform in all 50 states plus 30 foreign countries.

Alone each ensemble performs well, but together they are able to showcase orchestral masterworks, jazz classics, and Broadway musicals. Operations manager Jim Healy told Statesboro Herald, “we are very excited to help bring the Field Band and Chorus to Statesboro on this tour.”

Tickets can be picked up in the Statesboro Herald office in downtown Statesboro and also at Statesboro High and Deloach’s Music on Northside Drive.
