United State Air Force Academy Band The Falconaires’ Free concert at Wood River High School Theater

The Falconaires, the big band of the United States Air Force Academy Band, will present a performance in Hailey, ID at the Wood River High School Theater at Community Campus on April 11, 2024, at 7:00pm. Doors will open at 6:00pm and the show will begin at 7:00pm. This concert is free and open to the public.
The Falconaires will be taking the audience on a trip through the pantheon of big band jazz. Performing classics from the golden era of jazz, ala Count Basie and Glenn Miller, all the way through modern day hits like those from the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band and even some originals by Falconaires members. There will be something for everyone. The Falconaires will be traveling through Wyoming, Southern Idaho, Salt Lake City and concluding their 8 engagement tour in Grand Junction, CO before returning home to the Air Force Academy in
Colorado Springs.
The only musical ensemble which can genuinely trace its heritage back to the American military band is the big band. Made popular by its mainstream appeal during WWII, the big band continues to present a sound and excitement unmatched by any other musical ensemble. A unique and historic component to the heritage of the United States Air Force Academy, the Falconaires have brought the great sounds of big-band jazz to international audiences for over 50 years. In the time-honored tradition of the famous big bands, led by historic figures such
as Count Basie, Stan Kenton and Major Glenn Miller, this group of 18 full-time jazz musicians continues this heritage by performing the best jazz of the past, present and future in support of the United States Air Force Academy public relations and the United States Air Force and the United States Space Force recruiting.

The United States Air Force Academy Band proudly represents the Air Force Academy as the leading educational institution developing and inspiring air and space leaders of character with a vision for tomorrow. As one of two Air Force premier musical organizations, the Academy Band maintains a rigorous performance schedule in support of Cadet and Air Force troop morale, recruiting and community outreach. For over 60 years, the Academy Band has used the power of music to inspire Air Force personnel and the nation they serve, produce innovative musical programs and products, and communicate Air Force excellence to millions around the globe.
The United States Air Force Academy Band appears on behalf of Lieutenant General Richard Clark, Superintendent, the United States Air Force Academy. All performances are free and open to the public.
