Founded in 1957, the Soldiers’ Chorus is the vocal component of The United States

Army Field Band of Washington, DC. This 29-member mixed chorus travels throughout the nation and abroad, performing both independently and jointly with the Army Field Band’s Concert Band. The Soldiers’ Chorus has performed in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, India, and throughout Europe.

The musical backgrounds of the Soldiers’ Chorus personnel range from opera, musical theater, gospel, and rock music to music education and vocal coaching, providing the ensemble with unique programming flexibility. In addition to choral repertoire, Soldiers’ Chorus performances often include Broadway, opera, popular music, jazz, Americana, and more. This versatility contributes to the Soldiers’ Chorus nationwide reputation for musical excellence and inspiring patriotism.

The Soldiers’ Chorus has collaborated with the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, and the Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Nashville, and National symphony orchestras.
