{ theatre, music }

The U.S. Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus will perform a free concert at the historic Virginia Theatre in downtown Champaign on Easter Sunday, March 27, 2016, at 7:00 P.M. The originally scheduled show time of 3:00 P.M. was changed to 7:00 P.M. to better allow performers to attend church services that day. Free reserved seating tickets for the concert are available at the Virginia Theatre box office, www.thevirginia.org, or by phone at 217-356-9063. Presented by the Champaign Park District.

The U.S. Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus is 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.

About The Nutcracker

The talented dancers of the Champaign Urbana Ballet under the direction of Deanna Doty perform this timeless piece with live accompaniment from the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra.

It is the magical story of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince who are led through an enchanted dream by Clara’s godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. From the exciting battle of mice and soldiers to the magnificent scenes of snow and sweets, this entertaining ballet will captivate the imagination of audiences both young and young-at-heart.

Nowhere else in the area can you enjoy the combined beauty of a live ballet performance and a 40-piece orchestra, except through this CU Ballet performance.
