On Sunday, March 11, the Village of Wellington had a visit from the United States Army Field Band’s Jazz Ambassadors, which performed at the Wellington Amphitheater. Based in Washington, D.C., the performers tour around the United States.
This is the second military band to perform at the amphitheater. “The Regional Air Force National Guard Band performed in September, so we’re all excited to see the Jazz Ambassadors,” Wellington Cultural Programs & Facilities Manager Joe Piconcelli said.
Many residents, from young toddlers to seniors, came to see the soldiers perform. They started with the national anthem, and then they played great songs from the Dixieland band with some written by band members themselves. Everyone applauded vigorously as the band played “God Bless the U.S.A.”
