The 2010 season of Morningside College’s Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series will literally end with a bang on August 13 when a fireworks display wraps up a concert by The Noteables, the U.S. Air Force Heartland of America Band’s jazz ensemble.
The Noteables concert, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Buhler Outdoor Performance Center, 3625 Garretson Avenue, on the Morningside campus. In the event of rain, the performance will move to Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Ave.
Based at Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, Neb., The Noteables has appeared in concert and on national television with Bob Hope, jazz trumpeter Bobby Shew, composer/arranger Frank Mantooth, former Tonight Show band leader Doc Severinsen, pop singer Lee Greenwood and trombonist Wycliffe Gordon.
Randy Peters, artistic director for the Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series, said The Noteables concert and the fireworks display that follows are part of a salute to the U.S. armed forces.
“In addition to their uplifting repertoire of specially tailored standards and big band classics, The Noteables also shares stories of the bravery and self-sacrifice of men and women serving in the U.S. military around the world,” Peters said. “This final performance in our summer series should be inspiring for audience members of all ages.”
