Welcome Day at the Wortham begins at 10 a.m. on October 19th with a free movie screening (Disney Pixar-animated film Coco), and continues with events throughout the day, including a raffle, two guided tours of the facility, outdoor music and kids’ crafts, yoga and theatre games — and closing out at 4 p.m. with a FREE concert from the Jazz Ambassadors of the United States Army Field Band .
One of the finest big bands in the world today, the Jazz Ambassadors of the U.S. Army Field Band from Washington, D.C., tours thousands of miles each year to promote patriotism and good will for the U.S. Army through free public concerts. This concert is free, but does require a ticket for admission.
A highly competitive audition process draws candidates from leading conservatories, universities, and the professional ranks. Many members of the Jazz Ambassadors have extensive civilian performance experience, and some arrange and compose music highlighting the group's creative talent and gifted soloists. Their diverse repertoire includes big band swing, Latin music, contemporary jazz, bebop, standards, popular tunes, Dixieland and patriotic selections. Wherever they travel, the Jazz Ambassadors proudly carry the message of patriotism and goodwill to audiences worldwide.
