The USAF Band of Flight’s “Spirit of Freedom,” formerly known as Wright Brass, is a versatile and energetic brass quintet with an added percussionist. The members are all active duty musicians in the Air Force, stationed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

“Mansfield is home to an Air National Guard base and as representatives of the U.S. Air Force, we would love to come and give back to a community that gives so much to our military,” said Justis MacKenzie, tuba player and music arranger for the Band of Flight.

In addition to performing military ceremonies on and off base, the ensemble entertains public audiences throughout the state of Ohio. Spirit of Freedom is proud to represent those serving with the highest levels of professionalism and valor throughout the Air Force.

Spirit of Freedom previously performed in some of the most recognizable venues, universities and conservatories in Ohio. With an instrumentation of two trumpets, a horn, trombone, tuba and drums, the ensemble presents a program of exciting American music, celebrating military partnerships with the community, honoring those who have served our country, inspiring patriotism and service and connecting the public at large with their military.
