GREENSBORO, N.C. – The 82nd Airborne All-American Chorus, the official ambassadors of the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division, will perform during Military Day tomorrow at the Wyndham Championship. In addition, the tournament is announcing an Early Bird Special for the final round of the tournament.
The All-American Chorus will close the inaugural Wyndham Championship with a performance on the 18th green following the presentation of the Sam Snead Cup to the Wyndham winner.
“I saw the All-American Chorus at a charity event a few months ago, and I knew right then that we had to have them at our event,” tournament director Mark Brazil said. “When I saw them, I was floored; they are the perfect ending for Military Day and a fitting conclusion to the inaugural Wyndham Championship.”
For fans arriving for the final round of the Wyndham Championship prior to 9 a.m., tournament admission will be free of charge. To take advantage of the Early Bird Special, fans must be seated on parking lot shuttles prior to 9 a.m. There will be no exceptions or extensions. Final-round tee times begin at 8:40 a.m.
The All-American Chorus is a nonprofit musical group composed of Division Troopers representing every unit within the Division. An informal organization, the All-American Chorus was formed in November 1967 to sing at Sunday services in the Division Chapel. At that time the chorus consisted of about 15 members.
During a period of increased emphasis on the All Volunteer Army, the chorus performed at several professional and college baseball and football games as part of the pre-game of halftime ceremonies. Since it was formed, the chorus has performed for several military and civilian dignitaries including General of the Army Omar Bradley, the Governors of more than 20 states, senators and congressmen, members of the Association of the United States Army, and the senior command structure of the Army.
The 82nd Airborne Division’s “All-American” Chorus performs throughout the continental United States. Though their primary mission remains serving the soldiers of the U.S. Army and Fort Bragg, their off-post performances continue to increase, so much in fact that they have become one of the Army’s greatest recruiting tools. Appearing in their maroon berets, ascots, and highly spit-shined jump boots, the troopers of the “All-American” Chorus are truly ambassadors for the 82nd Airborne Division.
