In these days of skyrocketing inflation, “free” isn’t a word you hear often enough, but that’s the cost – zero dollars and zero cents – of an upcoming concert by the US Air Force Heritage of America Concert Band at the High Point Theatre. The band, which is from Langley-Eustis Air Force Base in Virginia, will perform on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m.

The High Point Theatre, the High Point Enterprise and the Heroes Center are co-sponsors of the free performance.

The USAF Concert Band features 40 professional musicians that have become quite well known and have proven very popular with audiences.

The band plays a variety of orchestral classics, marches, Broadway hits, jazz standards, movie music and, of course, patriotic favorites.

Though there’s no cost for attending the concert, tickets will be required. A limit of four tickets per order will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tickets may be obtained from the High Point Theatre box office or at the High Point Enterprise during regular business hours – or by mail through the High Point Theatre box office. To get tickets by mail, you should send a self-addressed, stamped envelope, including a request for the number of tickets desired, to: Tickets-USAF Heritage of America Band, High Point Theatre Box Office, 220 E. Commerce Ave., High Point, NC 27260.

Activated in 1941, The United States Air Force Heritage of America Concert Band has a long and rich history of entertaining the public and inspiring patriotism – as well as promoting unity among the branches of the military.

This group of world-class musicians based out of Virginia travel throughout North Carolina and South Carolinas as well as other Mid-Atlantic and Northeast states, putting on over 300 events a year.
