Beyond the traditional military music and patriotic standards, the repertoire of the Army Chorus covers a broad spectrum which includes pop, Broadway, folk and classical music. The Army Chorus performs frequently at the White House. When in Washington DC, foreign dignitaries and military counterparts visiting our nation's senior leadership are greeted by songs performed in their native tongues, as The Army Chorus is able to sing in 39 languages and dialects. Members of the chorus, most of whom hold advanced degrees in music, are selected from among the nation's finest musicians
