The internationally acclaimed U.S. Army Jazz Ambassadors of Washington, D.C., will continue its long history of presenting free public performances when it appears at Martin Luther College on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. in New Ulm.  The Jazz Ambassadors’ concert is sponsored by Martin Luther College and The Journal.

As the premier touring big band for the United States Army, the Jazz Ambassadors travel thousands of miles each year throughout the nation and abroad, keeping the will of the American people behind the members of the armed forces and supporting diplomatic efforts around the world.  Since its formation in 1969, the Jazz Ambassadors have appeared in all 50 states and throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.

The Jazz Ambassadors presents a diverse program of big band swing, Latin music, contemporary jazz, popular tunes, standards, Dixieland, and patriotic selections.  Maestro Marvin Hamlisch, during a joint concert with the National Symphony Orchestra, exclaimed, “I can’t think of better ambassadors for our country!”

Members of the Jazz Ambassadors are selected by highly competitive audition and represent some of the finest musical talent in America.  More than three decades of touring have earned them the title, “The Musical Ambassadors of the Army.”
