U.S. Army Field Band Returns To The Capitol Center For The Arts
The acclaimed U.S. Army Field Band & Solder's Chorus, the musical ambassadors of the Army, will perform at the Capitol Center for the Arts (Concord, NH) on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 7:30PM. They will perform the "The Army Story," which brings audience members the music that has had a large impact on American culture and the perception of soldiers' lives and sacrifices. Through musical and visual elements, "The Army Story" reminds Americans of the contributions, service and sacrifice of our soldiers. This performance is part of the free 2018-'19 William H. Gile Concert Series.
The U.S. Army Field Band & Solder's Chorus are the oldest and largest of the U.S. Army Field Band's performing components. These two ensembles combine to present joint concerts on their national tours. They have performed in all 50 states and 30 foreign countries for audiences totaling hundreds of millions. The 60-member Concert Band and 29-member Soldiers' Chorus perform regularly in some of the most famous concert halls in the world, and just as often in the humblest auditoriums in the smallest of communities. The joining of these two ensembles allows them to offer unparalleled versatility of programming, ranging from orchestral masterworks and operatic arias to Sousa marches, jazz classics, and Broadway musicals.
The Band & Chorus also perform independently, and have recently shared the stage with such ensembles as the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra. In addition to their national tours, formal concerts, chamber recitals, and educational outreach, members of the Concert Band and Soldiers' Chorus frequently represent the Army at formal and ceremonial functions, including the Presidential Inaugural Parade, presidential funerals, the Army AllAmerican Bowl, and diplomatic efforts overseas.
Tickets for the free March 26 U.S. Army Field Band & Solder's Chorus performance are limited to four per patron and are available starting Monday, February 25, 2019 at 11AM.
