The Band of the U.S. Air Force Reserve will present its free annual holiday concert at the Museum of Aviation Dec. 9 at 7 p.m.

“Throughout this past year, the band has entertained millions of people across the country as well as many of our deployed troops overseas,” said Maj. Donald Schofield, band commander. “After a whirl wind year, we’re thrilled to share the gift of music this holiday season and end the year with our Middle Georgia family.”
