POTSDAM -- The U.S. Army Jazz Band will perform for free March 31 at SUNY Potsdam’s Hosmer Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m.

As the premier touring big band for the United States Army, the band travels the nation and abroad, keeping the will of the American people behind the members of the armed forces and supporting diplomatic efforts around the world.

Since its formation in 1969, the Jazz Ambassadors have appeared in all 50 states and throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.

The band offers a diverse program of big band swing, Latin music, contemporary jazz, popular tunes, standards, Dixieland, and patriotic selections.

Members of the Jazz Ambassadors are selected by highly competitive audition and represent some of the finest musical talent in America.

More than three decades of touring have earned them the title, “The Musical Ambassadors of the Army.”
