The U.S. Air Force Band of Mid America's "Shades of Blue" jazz ensemble is scheduled to perform 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Aug. 13 and Sept. 9, at North School Park, Eastman Street and Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights.

The ensemble is a group of 18 professional enlisted musicians whose repertoire ranges from traditional big band jazz, to bebop and swing, to modern jazz. At one of their concerts, you are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary composers as you would the classic sounds of Count Basie or Glenn Miller.
