Torrington, CT - 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 the Warner Theatre on Thursday, March 21. The concert, originally scheduled for 8 pm, has been rescheduled for 7:30 pm. The Army Field Bands’ concert is sponsored by Torrington Savings Bank.

The Concert Band & Soldiers’ Chorus are the oldest and largest of The US Army Field Band’s performing components. These two ensembles continue 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 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 and 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. More than six decades as the military’s most traveled musicians have earned them the title, “The Musical Ambassadors of the Army.”

Please note this event is free, but a ticket is required (limit 6). To reserve your tickets, call the Warner Box Office at 860-489-7180 or visit warnertheatre.org.
