EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The United States Air Force Band and Singing Sergeants from Washington, D.C., will present a concert on April 22 at 3 p.m. at the Okaloosa Walton College Arts Center.

The Concert Band is a 65-piece, world-class symphonic wind ensemble. It presents more than 100 concerts annually and performs a wide variety of repertoire from light classics, popular favorites and instrumental features, to classical transcriptions and original works for the band idiom.
The Singing Sergeants, the 24-voice official chorus of the United States Air Force, is one of the world's most versatile and traveled choral organizations. It is also one of a select few singing groups internationally recognized for its commitment to excellence in vocal performance. Originally formed in 1945 from within the ranks of The United States Air Force Band, the chorus is now composed entirely of professional vocalists who have come from leading colleges, universities and music conservatories throughout the world; and who are all sergeants in the United States Air Force.
