U.S. Army Field Band & Soldiers' Chorus

U.S. Army Field Band & Soldiers' Chorus


As the premier touring musical representative for the United States Army, the Field Band travels thousands of miles each year throughout the nation and abroad, keeping the will of the American people behind the members of the armed forces and supporting diplomatic efforts around the world. Since its formation in 1946, the Field Band has appeared in all 50 states and in more than 30 countries on four continents.

Along with the Soldiers' Chorus, which was founded in 1957, this 65-member Concert Band presents a powerful and diverse program of marches, overtures, popular music, patriotic selections, and instrumental and vocal solos. A music critic for the Boston Globe called a Field Band performance "a cause to stand up and cheer."

The Field Band’s members, selected by highly competitive audition, represent some of the finest musical talent in America. More than five decades as the military’s most traveled musicians have earned them the title, “The Musical Ambassadors of the Army.”

At the direction of Commander Jim Keene, the performances give the Army Field Band the opportunity to connect with Americans in their hometown and tell the Army story.

“We honor the fallen and recognize all veterans who served their country,” said Col. Jim Keene. “As we present patriotic favorites, we know Americans will be filled with pride in our soldiers and in our nation.”
