U.S. Air Force band performs at mansion
Jazz, folk and classical melodies will ascend from the State Dining Room of the Old Governor’s Mansion at Georgia College at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6.
The Clarinet Quartet, an ensemble of the Band of the U.S. Air Force Reserve at Robins Air Force Base, will perform songs representing different countries, time periods and styles during an evening of music at the mansion.
The event is free and open to the public.
“We are truly excited to welcome the quartet to the Old Governor’s Mansion,” said Matthew S. Davis, mansion curator. “We encourage the campus and local community to attend for an evening of world-class entertainment.”
The quartet includes the nation’s finest professional musicians. As members of the Band of the U.S. Air Force Reserve, these musicians perform internationally with military leaders, heads of state and celebrity singers such as Celine Dion and Lee Ann Womack.
During the mansion performance, the quartet will play a variety of recognizable tunes for guests of all ages.
“All of the musical selections are relatively short,” said Staff Sgt. Jeremy Cohen, assistant director of operations and concert band tour manager. “With such a varied program, there is something for everyone to enjoy.”
