Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center presents The Concert Band and Soldiers’ Chorus of the U.S. Army Field Band at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 4 in the Hoke Theatre.
The Concert Band and Soldiers’ Chorus are the oldest and largest of the U.S. Army Field Band’s performing components. Founded in 1946 and 1957 respectively, these two ensembles combine to present joint concerts on their national tours. They have performed in all 50 states and 30 foreign countries for audiences totaling hundreds of millions. The 65-member Concert Band and 29-member Soldiers’ Chorus perform regularly in some of the most famous concert halls in the world, and just as often in the humblest auditoriums in the smallest of communities. The joining of these two ensembles allows them to offer unparalleled versatility of programming, ranging from orchestral masterworks and operatic arias to Sousa marches, jazz classics and Broadway musicals. The band and chorus also perform independently, and have recently shared the stage with such ensembles as the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra.
Admission is free with a ticket. To request a ticket, please call the Stocker Box Office at (440) 366-4040. The Stocker Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 90 minutes prior to ticketed events.

Stocker Arts Center is located on the campus of Lorain County Community College at 1005 North Abbe Road, Elyria, Ohio.
