Major Randall Bartel, Commander and Conductor
Chief Warrant Officer Richard Chapman, Executive Officer and Assistant Conductor
Sergeant Major Lori Nix, Enlisted bandleader

The United States Army Europe Band & Chorus presents a concert commemorating the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and the Allied Liberation of Europe. The selections demonstrate the diversity of our Allied partners’ musical traditions and the many styles of the World War II era. 

The performance includes the world premiere of an original work by a current member of the band, Sergeant Michael Shomo. The Shores of Liberté is a tribute to the resolve of those who fought in the single largest military operation in history and celebrates the freedoms earned by those who struggled, sacrificed, and persevered for us all.
