The United States Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus will perform a free concert at Missouri S&T at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
The United States Army Field Band is considered by music critics to be one of the most versatile and inspiring musical organizations in the world. More than six decades as the military’s most traveled musicians have earned them the title, “The Musical Ambassadors of the Army.”
The Soldiers’ Chorus members’ diverse talents range from opera and musical theatre to music education and vocal coaching. Critics have acclaimed recent appearances with the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, and the Detroit, Dallas, and National symphony orchestras. Other notable performances include four world fairs, Kennedy Center Honors Programs, the 750th anniversary of Berlin and the rededication of the Statue of Liberty.
The concert is free, but tickets are required. Tickets are available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour before the concert in the Leach Theatre Box Office, located in Castleman Hall.
