The US Air Force is sending its top brass to the Oregon Coast, with a quintet of uniformed musicians presenting free concerts in Newport on Tuesday, Aug. 20, and in Lincoln City on Saturday, Aug. 25.

The Travis Brass is part of the US Air Force Band of the Golden West from Travis Air Force Base, California. Comprised of two trumpets, French horn, trombone and a tuba, the Travis Brass performs for a wide variety of musical events such as military ceremonies, patriotic shows, veteran-appreciation events and formal concerts.

The band also has a variety of educational programs, including young children’s concerts, combined concerts and masterclasses for high school students, and intensive coaching sessions for collegiate undergraduate and graduate students. The small size and logistical footprint combined with versatile, exciting and engaging programming make the Travis Brass a great choice for any event or audience.

The Tuesday, Aug. 20, concert will start at 7 pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W Olive Street. The concert is free, but tickets are required and can be reserved at https://travisbrassnewport.eventbrite.com.

The band will be back in action on Saturday, Aug. 25, with a free concert starting at 6 pm at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE Hwy. 101. For tickets, go to https://travisbrasslincolncity.eventbrite.com.
