8/3/2011 - DAYTON, Ohio -- Tickets will be available at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 10 for the U.S. Air Force Band of Flight and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra's joint concert in honor of Patriot Day in September.

This free concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11 at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Patriot Day is observed annually nationwide in memory of the victims of the terrorist attacks in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

Those requesting tickets must provide their name, phone number, address, date of concert they would like to attend and the number of tickets they would like mailed to them. The limit is four tickets per person and they will be mailed by Sept. 2.

This concert is the sixth collaboration in eight years between the Band of Flight and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. The 2011 Patriot Day concert is presented by Booz Allen Hamilton and sponsored by Dayton Aerospace and Butt Construction Company. Federal endorsement not implied.

Included in the program will be a tribute to Ohio Task Force One, the local urban search and rescue team that deployed to New York City in the hours and days following the attacks. Ohio Task Force One is one of 28 task forces that make up the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Urban Search and Rescue Response System.

"There hadn't been such a defining day in American history like September 11, 2001, since Pearl Harbor. This year's Patriot Day concert will commemorate the 10th anniversary of that September day," said Band of Flight Commander Maj. R. Michael Mench.

The National Museum of the United States Air Force is located on Springfield Street, six miles northeast of downtown Dayton.
