The United States Army Chorus is hiring + other areas too!

The Army Chorus highly values singers who are passionate about their craft. Chorus members have the opportunity to avail themselves of professional-development funds to study with voice teachers and coaches of their choice. Some members of the Chorus have even been able to use their annual 30 days of paid leave to perform locally, nationally, and internationally as soloists in such houses as The New York City Opera, Carnegie Hall, and The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. That flexibility and the chance to act as musical ambassadors to the most influential people in the world are reasons that many members of the Chorus decide to retire from the Chorus after a full career of 20 years or more.

We have many exciting career opportunities available for up-and-coming tenors, baritones, and basses. We are currently accepting audition materials for Tenors and Baritones. If you know singers who may be interested, but don’t necessarily fit the voice parts we are currently accepting applications for, make sure they continue to check the vacancy page at https://www.usarmyband.com/vacancies for the most updated and current list of openings.
