Opera House presents Soldiers’ Chorus

The Soldiers’ Chorus is performing for free on Monday at the Opera House.

The 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center presents the Soldiers’ Chorus of the US Army Field Band in a free performance this Monday at 7 p.m.

The Soldiers’ Chorus, founded in 1957, is the vocal complement of the United States Army Field Band of Washington, DC. The 29-member mixed choral ensemble travels throughout the nation and abroad, performing as a separate component and in joint concerts with the Concert Band of the “Musical Ambassadors of the Army.” The chorus has performed in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, India, the Far East, and throughout Europe, entertaining audiences of all ages.

The musical backgrounds of Soldiers’ Chorus personnel range from opera and musical theater to music education and vocal coaching; this diversity provides unique programming flexibility. In addition to presenting selections from the vast choral repertoire, performances often include the music of Broadway, opera, barbershop quartet, and Americana.

This versatility has earned the Soldiers’ Chorus an international reputation for presenting musical excellence and inspiring patriotism. Critics have acclaimed recent appearances with the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, and the Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Nashville, and National symphony orchestras. Other notable performances include four world fairs, American Choral Directors Association conferences, music educator conventions, Kennedy Center Honors Programs, the 750th anniversary of Berlin, and the rededication of the Statue of Liberty.

Admission to the performance is free, but tickets are required. Visit or call the Box Office at 716-679-1891. There is a limit of three tickets per reservation. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door, but this is not assured.

The performance is presented, in part, with support from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Arts and Cultural Initiative, as administered by the Community Foundation of Greater Buffalo.

The 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center is a member-supported not-for-profit performing arts center with a mission to “present the performing arts for the benefit of our community and region … providing access to artistic diversity … and high-quality programming at an affordable price.” It is located in Village Hall in downtown Fredonia.
