The band is comprised of  60 active-duty U.S. Air Force Airmen, reported Jill Worth. The musicians are from the diverse regions of the U.S. and have extensive experience and education.

Capt. Michael D. Hoerber is commander and conductor, said Worth. He aids in overseeing more than 350 annual musical presentations and multimedia productions by squadron ensembles.

Capt. Hoerber joined the U.S. Air Force in July 2006. Upon graduation as a distinguished graduate from Officer Training School at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala., he was assigned as deputy commander/assistant conductor of the Heartland of America Band at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Neb. He returned to Maxwell AFB in January 2007 to attend the USAF Air and Space Basic Course. In the spring of 2011, he deployed to Southwest Asia as the officer in charge of the U.S. Air Forces Central Band for six months.

Prior to joining the Air Force, Capt. Hoerber served three years as music director of the North Valley Chamber Orchestra at Paradise Valley Community College and four years as director of bands at Paradise Valley High School in Phoenix, Ariz. Additionally, he was the assistant conductor for the Tempe Symphony Orchestra from 2000-2006.

“The Town of Irvington and the Village Improvement Association which sponsor the concert are delighted to invite the community to this free concert and urge them to bring their blankets or chairs and picnic baskets,” said Worth.
