USAREUR Band and Chorus

The USAREUR Band and Chorus’s Soldiers of Swing, under the direction of SFC William King, recently completed a short tour of Poland in support of the Commanding General’s theater engagement plan. Sponsored by the American consulate in Krakow, the band traveled in excess of 2400 kilometers to support growing Polish-American relations.

On it’s second mission to Poland the Soldiers of Swing performed a varied program of classic American styles including dixieland, swing, funk and salsa. The group’s list of performances included engagements at the 13th International Swidnica Jazz Festival, the Krakow Military Club, and the Polish-American Performing Arts School in Katowice.

The Soldiers of Swing is one of The USAREUR Band and Chorus’ most requested ensembles and travels extensively throughout the theater to promote US interests and relations with allies new and old alike.
