In September, the U.S. Army Jazz Ambassadors traveled to Alaska, where they performed a week of concerts and educational clinics throughout the state.
It was the first time in more than 30 years the Jazz Ambassadors toured Alaska. The Soldiers were eager to reach as many people as possible with their signature jazz sound. Taking into consideration the nearly day-long flight into and out of the state, the Soldiers had about five days to engage, and they made the most of every second.
Traveling more than 1,000 miles on tour, the band conducted five educational clinics, two educational assemblies, and four concerts. For many residents, having the chance to see the Jazz Ambassadors perform was a rare treat.
