U.S. Army Blues to Perform as Part of FSU’s Eighth Annual Jazz Festival

As part of Frostburg State University’s Department of Music’s eighth annual Jazz Festival, the U.S. Army Blues will perform on Saturday, Feb. 17, at 4 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.

The concert is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Seating is general admission and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets can be ordered at https://frostburgtix.universitytickets.com/w/event.aspx?id=2009. Tickets will also be available at the door on the evening of the concert.

The U.S. Army Blues, part of the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own,” is the premier jazz ensemble of the U.S. Army. After informal beginnings in 1970, this 18-piece ensemble became an official element of the Army Band in 1972. The Army Blues strive to fulfill their mission through public concerts, educational outreach and the preservation of the tradition of America’s unique art form: jazz.

The Jazz Festival also provides an opportunity for high school students in the Mid-Atlantic region to spend the afternoon in clinics focused on jazz music. From 9 a.m. to noon there will be high school jazz ensemble clinics, and from 1 to 2 p.m. there will be sectional clinics with members from the U.S. Army Blues. The classes are open to the public and will take place in the Pealer Performing Arts Center.
