USAF Band of the West LogoThe Gateway Brass concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the EFA Building’s Eldon Black Recital Hall and is open free to the public. Prior to the concert, Gateway Brass will perform a master class at 5 p.m. in the Eldon Black Recital Hall that is also open free to the public. 

Gateway Brass is a brass quintet with percussion that proudly showcases military professionalism at U.S. Department of Defense ceremonies and entertaining public concerts throughout the Gulf Coast Region on behalf of the U.S. Air Force. This virtuoso group of active duty airman musicians performs an exciting range of musical styles spanning five centuries.

The ensemble is a component of the U.S. Air Force Band of the West located at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, where the Air Education and Training Command conducts Basic Military Training for over 30,000 young men and women every year. Because all enlisted airmen must first pass through JBSA-Lackland, it is known as “The Gateway to the Air Force,” which became the inspiration for the group’s name.
