United States Army Strings - Biographical Information

The U.S. Army Strolling Strings is one of the most requested musical ensembles by our nation’s military leadership. Since its inception during the Eisenhower administration, the group has provided musical entertainment at the White House for every president. A distinctly unique member of its instrumentation, the ensemble boasts an accordion, which adds rich color and texture to the group’s sound. The Strolling Strings offers a wide array of memorized repertoire including patriotic, classical, international, jazz, Broadway, bluegrass, and exclusive music arrangements for special guests and events. Chamber music is a core element of The U.S. Army Strings’ mission. String quartets provide a backdrop for significant official functions as well as public performances. Duos, trios, quartets, and mixed chamber ensembles perform in venues throughout the year.
