The United States Air Force Band of the Golden West will present a free concert at 7:30 pm on Feb. 23, at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons.

The concert will focus on a variety of styles, from traditional band repertoire, patriotic music and marches.

This tour features clarinet soloist Master Sergeant Frank Milicia, playing a musical piece based on themes from Verdi's opera Rigoletto. He will be accompanied by the 45-piece band.

Two vocalists, Staff Sergeant Niko Ellison and Senior Airman Pamela MacKenzie, are also featured on songs that celebrate America's musical heritage in song.

The band will be conducted by its new commander, Major Keith Bland, in his Santa Clarita debut.

The band is stationed at Travis Air Force Base. As the only remaining active duty Air Force band west of the Rockies, its geographic area of responsibility includes Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho and California.

Since this is a free event, there will be no assigned seats and admission will be on a first come, first served basis.
