At first the Airmen of Note performed a Latin inspired chart, after the band finished playing Master Sergeant Benjamin P. Patterson took the stage and introduced the entire band. Then Sergeant Patterson did a quick q&a(question and answer) and he introduced vocalist Paige C. Wroble. She sang two charts, after which Sergeant Patterson did another q&a and asked up to the stage Tedd C. Baker, Grant M. Langford, and Douglas C. Morgan to perform the last chart of the night.

After the concert was over the Airmen of Note offered lessons for their respective instruments; in their lessons they gave students quick tips and helped perfect their techniques.
