Heritage of America Band will visit Irvington May 28


The U.S. Air Force Heritage of America Concert band—approximately 40 strong—will entertain Northern Neck audiences at 2 p.m. May 28 on Irvington Commons, 98 King Carter Drive, Irvington.

“The Irvington Village Improvement Association encourages you to bring your chairs and a picnic while you settle in with family and friends to enjoy this musical celebration of Memorial Day.” said CJ Carter.

The Heritage of America Concert Band, the largest of the U.S. Air Forces’s six ensembles, is known for its renditions of orchestral classics, marches, Broadway hits, jazz standards, movie music and patriotic favorites. The band has entertained audiences as varied as U.S. presidents and foreign heads of state, including the queen of England and the president of France, said Carter.

The band has a rich history of inspiring hearts and minds, building and sustaining American patriotism and enhancing esprit de corps in the U.S. Air Force.

Chesapeake Bank, a concert sponsor, will offer free hot dogs from noon to 2 p.m.
