The Arts Council is proud to announce that the USAF Band of Mid-America’s Shades of Blue jazz ensemble will present a concert at the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids on March 14, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. This is a family-friendly, all-ages event. We encourage all veterans to attend! Admission is free and open to the public, and seating is reserved. You must have a ticket in order to enter the PAC that night. Shades of Blue is a group of 13 professional musicians whose music inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members, and honors our country’s veterans. During a concert, you are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary jazz composers as you would the classic sounds of Count Basie or Maj. Glenn Miller. The band features instrumental and vocal soloists, as well as compositions and arrangements by its own talented members. Tickets are available through the Arts Council web site (www.SavorTheArts.org) or by contacting the Arts Council (715.424.2787 or 1040 8th Street South, Suite 101, Wisconsin Rapids). We ask that, while tickets are free, you only reserve seats that you plan to use. We expect to fill the PAC for this performance and would hate to turn people away and then find that seats are not being occupied that were reserved. A huge thank you to River Cities Investment Services, Inc., our sponsor for this performance.
