Army Field Band & Chorus: Representing in Connecticut shows

March 12, 2019

After a Wednesday concert at The Palace in Stamford and a sold-out concert at the Warner Theatre in Torrington Thursday night, the Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus will perform at Southern Connecticut State University’s Lyman Center Friday, March 22.

The Washington, D.C., band, the premier touring musical representative for the United States Army, will perform “This We’ll Defend,” a concert that puts audience members side-by-side with the soldiers defending the country — from the landing at Omaha Beach on D-Day to the siege in Sadr City, Iraq.

The internationally acclaimed organization travels thousands of miles each year presenting a variety of music to enthusiastic audiences. 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, according to a band release.

The organization’s four performing components are the Concert Band, the Soldiers’ Chorus, the Jazz Ambassadors and Six-String Soldiers.

John Lyman Center for the Performing Arts, SCSU, 501 Crescent St. New Haven. Friday, March 22, 7:30 p.m. Free. Limit 4 tickets. 203-392-6154 or email lymancenter@southernct.edu.
