The Liberty Clarinet Quartet, part of the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America, will perform a free public concert at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16 in the Kasch Performance Hall of Monmouth College’s Dahl Chapel and Auditorium.

Stationed at Scott Air Force Base in southern Illinois, the ensemble is committed to honoring and inspiring military and civilian audiences by presenting a wide range of musical literature – from traditional classical repertoire to marches and light pop.

The quartet serves as an ambassador of the Air Force Band of Mid-America, providing a product that communicates esprit de corps, motivation and inspiration, while honoring to Airmen and the United States. It performs throughout a 10-state region of the Midwest.

Members of the quartet are called upon to perform for military ceremonies, as well as a variety of community events and concerts. The ensemble also reaches out to support music students, providing concerts and clinics in an educational environment.
