Air Force band and chorus cancel eight-state tour

About Bob Karlovits

An April 2 concert by the U.S. Air Force Concert Band and Singing Sergeants in Oakland has been canceled because of cost-cutting by the Department of Defense.

The two groups were scheduled to perform at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, but all Air Force units have ended their tours in because of the federal sequestration.

The visit here would have been part of an eight-state tour.
