United States' Army Herald Trumpets

Since its establishment in 1959, The U.S. Army Herald Trumpets has performed at numerous historical occasions. Its first official performance welcomed Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II to America for the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway. In the ensuing years the group has performed for an illustrious array of presidents, prime ministers, and royalty. The Army Herald Trumpets has performed fanfares during opening ceremonies for the 1980 and 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, California, and the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia. The ensemble’s appearances at several World’s Fairs, the opening of Walt Disney World, the “G8” Economic Summits in 1984, 1990, and 2004, and the pre-game of Superbowl XXXIX were critically acclaimed.

This premier ensemble was seen by millions worldwide at the relighting ceremony of the Statue of Liberty, and adds flourish to annual nationally-televised holiday celebrations: “A Capitol Fourth,” “Christmas in Washington,” and numerous Memorial and Veterans Day events that celebrate America’s proud military tradition.

The U.S. Army Herald Trumpets gave a memorable performance in 2004 at the dedication of the National WWII Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and has added fanfare to the arrival of foreign leaders for the ceremonies commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations in San Francisco, New York City, and Washington, DC.
