Silent Wings Museum will host a classical and jazz performance by the 36th Infantry Division Band on Saturday from 5 – 8 p.m. The performance is free and patrons are invited to view all of the exhibits at Silent Wings Museum during the concert.
The 36th Infantry Band is composed of soldiers serving in the Texas Army National Guard. The band has over sixty members from all areas of civilian professions. Musicians come from law enforcement, public service, private business, and education, to name a few. Additionally, nearly one quarter of the unit consists of students seeking undergraduate or graduate degrees in a variety of fields.
National Guard musicians train one weekend a month and two weeks in the summer, with many different opportunities to perform. The unit served in Basra, Iraq and is currently based in Austin.
The 36th Infantry Division Band is made up of many smaller performing ensembles. The band will be broken up into these ensembles while at Silent Wings Museum, with each performing a few songs. Patrons can look forward to a variety of music throughout the evening.
