COLUMBIA, Md. -- Recess, one of The U.S. Army Field Band's newest educational outreach ensembles, performed for students and faculty at Swansfield Elementary School, June 6. Recess develops engaging performances for pre-kindergarten and elementary students throughout the U.S.

The group consists of members of both the Soldiers' Chorus and Concert Band, all of whom are former music educators. Recess incorporates Broadway favorites, patriotic standards, ragtime, and classic children's songs with a uniquely interactive approach to concert programming.
