The U.S. Army Strings
The U.S. Army Strings provides a musical backdrop for many of the country’s most notable events. Their mission is to serve as musical ambassadors for high-level military and government events at home and abroad, as well as in concert for public audiences. Since its inception during the Eisenhower administration, the ensemble has provided musical entertainment at the White House for every president. It offers audiences the unique perspective of being within the ensemble as Soldiers elegantly move about the venue playing their instruments.
