Airmen musicians hold free concert
The U.S. Air Force Concert Band will play a free concert today in the city’s downtown River Market District.
The band will perform from 3-5 p.m. at the First Security Amphitheater.
The event is a partnership between the city, the Convention and Visitors Bureau and the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service.
The U.S. Air Force Concert Band began in 1941 with three musicians.
It is now internationally known and has 179 members. Col. Gerald Donohue of the Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville will introduce the band.
