Access Sacramento was fortunate to learn of a FREE concert that was being performed at the Sacramento Community Center. The concert was performed by the USAF Band of the Golden West. Shawn Scott host of “Giving” (locally produced show on Cable Channel 17) coordinated to have the event videotaped to share on the Access Sacramento Channel 17. This event will air during our Holiday schedule of local shows for those of you who may have missed this wonderful event.
The Band of the Golden West is led by Commander/Conductor, Captain Haley Armstrong. Captain Armstrong enjoys what she does and you can see the passion with which she directs. The band was made up of a 40 piece ensemble that travel all over and perform. The performance of holiday music was very entertaining. Also, performing with the band was a group of three young ladies called the ‘Honeybee Trio’.
The Honeybee Trio sang songs from the 30s and 40s similar to the well-known Andrew sisters. It was wonderful to see the auditorium fill up quickly to enjoy the concert. A special appearance from some of the Tuskegee Airman were also present to enjoy the concert. The music was enjoyed by old and young alike.
During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season let us remember our Military both here and abroad. Happy Holidays from all of us at Access Sacramento.
