The internationally acclaimed U.S. Army Jazz Ambassadors of Washington, D.C. will continue its long history of presenting free public performances when it appears at Mattacheese Middle School on Tuesday, March 25th at 7:00PM. The Jazz Ambassadors’ concert in West Yarmouth is sponsored by the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce.
As the premier touring big band for the United States Army, the Jazz Ambassadors travel thousands of miles each year throughout 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 Jazz Ambassadors present a diverse program of big band swing, Latin music, contemporary jazz, popular tunes, standards, Dixieland, and patriotic selections. Maestro Marvin Hamlisch, during a joint concert with the National Symphony Orchestra, exclaimed, “I can’t think of better ambassadors for our country!”
Past performance highlights include the Montreux, North Sea, and Newport Jazz Festivals, World War II 50th anniversary commemorations in the United States and Europe, and performances in India and Japan. After performing with the Cincinnati Pops at Carnegie Hall, the Cincinnati Enquirer declared that “the musicianship was superb… The Jazz Ambassadors are polished and seamless virtuosos.”
Members of the Jazz Ambassadors are selected by highly competitive auditions 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.”
