EVESHAM >> The U.S. Army Blues Jazz Ensemble will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 30 at the Lenape Regional Performing Arts Center, located at Cherokee High School, 120 Tomlinson Mill Road, here.
The U.S. Army Blues which is part of the United States Army Band, “Pershing’s Own,” is the premier jazz ensemble of the United States Army. After informal beginnings in 1970, this 18-piece ensemble became an official element of the Army Band in 1972. Comprised of exceptional jazz musicians from across the nation, 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.
In addition to the U.S. Army Blues performance, there will also be performances by Cherokee High School’s and DeMasi Middle School’s Jazz Band Ensembles.
