Arts Council of Tamworth (ACT) is delighted to present the United States Air Force Band of Liberty New England Winds playing a full concert on Sunday, February 12 at 2:00 PM at St. Andrew’s-in-the-Valley in Tamworth and a mini-concert with Q&A at 9:00 AM on Monday, February 13 at the K. A. Brett School. Airman First Class Carolyn Sierichs on flute, Airman First Class Kathleen Tennyson on oboe, Staff Sergeant Mickey Ireland on clarinet and Staff Sergeant Christopher Stahl on bassoon will present a program featuring something for all musical tastes: popular, Broadway, patriotic, jazz and folk music, as well as pieces from the traditional woodwind quintet repertoire. The repertoire on Sunday afternoon will include works by Strauss, Albeniz, Debussy, Gershwin, and Sousa, and a new work by Alyssa Morris, and the concert will be followed by a reception—a great opportunity to meet and talk to these fine musicians. Both concerts are free and open to the public. ACT welcomes donations to help support the organization.
