The Upton Cultural Council will present a free concert open to residents of Upton and its surrounding communities featuring The United States Air Force Heritage of America “Rhythm in Blue” Jazz Ensemble on Sunday, October 6 at 2pm in Upton Town Hall.
“Rhythm in Blue” features the diverse talents of 15 professional musicians whose commitment to excellence has earned worldwide acclaim and military distinction. The band incorporates a wide repertoire of jazz and fusion, from big band swing to cutting-edge contemporary music.
Activated in 1941, The United States Air Force Heritage of America Band has a rich history of inspiring public patriotism and enhancing esprit de corps among all the US military service branches. They travel throughout the Carolinas, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions, presenting over 350 events annually for the general public and in support of Airman morale and protocol events.
The event is free, but refreshments will be available for purchase and donations will be accepted with all proceeds benefitting Upton’s VFW in its effort to replace the aging floor in their building.
“This free event will connect the community in a patriotic way in the heart of Upton, our renovated and historic town hall,” notes Cultural Council Co-chair, Shelley Ryan. “The cultural council continues to look for ways to bring free events like this one to the town.”
