Arts Centre Providing Free Holiday Concert on Dec. 6

Army Ground Forces Jazz Guardians Performing Big Band Music

The Centre for Performing and Visual Arts of Coweta County has during the past four years hosted several concerts by bands from our armed forces. On December 6 at 7 PM an Army Ground Forces group from Fort McPherson called the Jazz Guardians will be at the Centre performing big band holiday music. The concert is free.

The Army Ground Forces website provides this information about their jazz band:

The Jazz Guardians

The Jazz Guardians is an 18-member group whose primary mission is to maintain and promote Jazz, a uniquely American art form. The Jazz Guardians pay tribute to the big bands of yesterday by performing the music made popular by such greats as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, and Woody Herman. Demonstrating their great versatility, the group also performs the latest and most innovative sounds of today's most popular composers.

The Jazz Guardians have been featured at numerous jazz festivals around the United States, performing with such notable artists as Louis Bellson, Cab Calloway, Bill Watrous, Conrad Herwig and Jamey Abersold.

Equally comfortable in live performance or the studio, the group recently finished recording its second compact disc, appropriately titled The Jazz Guardians.

Given their broad talents and diverse repertoire, the Jazz Guardians offer concerts that will be sure to entertain any audience.
