As the premier touring musical representative for the United States Army, this internationally-acclaimed organization travels thousands of miles each year presenting a variety of music to enthusiastic audiences throughout the nation and abroad. Through these concerts, the Field Band fosters the support of the American people for members of the armed forces and supports diplomatic efforts around the world.
“Every one of these professional musicians is an American Soldier.”
-Brigadier General Vincent K. Brooks
Our mission of serving and inspiring Americans is one that is executed hundreds of times every year. In 2015, Staff Sergeant Benjamin Hilgert of the Soldiers’ Chorus conceived of a way to carry out that mission more effectively than ever: an opera based on the true stories of active duty Soldiers. Through collaboration with librettist Jerre Dye, Texas Christian University, and prominent opera companies across the United States, SSG Hilgert unveiled a new dimension in telling the Army’s story and honoring our Veterans.
