 Our Next Show: The Musical Ambassadors of the Army 

The United States Army Field Band
CONCERT BAND & SOLDIERS’ CHORUS

The internationally acclaimed United States Army Field Band of Washington, DC will continue its long tradition of presenting free public performances when it appears at:

Rudder Auditorium on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 7:30 PM.

The AVPA is dedicated to providing quality performances and impactful educational experiences for Texas A&M students and the local community.  Carisa Armstrong (AVPA Director) said “I had the opportunity to see The Army Field Band and Chorus perform live last year. I knew this performance would be wonderful to present in our community. We are strong supporters of our armed forces and our community has deep ties to all the branches of the military. This is one of the finest military ensembles in the country and I had to share it with our community.”

The Concert Band & Soldiers’ Chorus are the oldest and largest of The U.S. Army Field Band’s performing components. Founded in 1946 and 1957 respectively, 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.

Their mission is to serve and inspire the American people by telling the Army story and honoring our Soldiers and Veterans at home and abroad as The Musical Ambassadors of the Army.

The band and 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 & Soldiers’ Chorus frequently represent the Army at formal and ceremonial functions, including the Presidential Inaugural Parade, presidential funerals, the Army All American Bowl, and diplomatic efforts overseas.
