CU Boulder College of Music

In 2017, Captain Silas Huff left his active duty army conductor job to pursue a DMA in orchestra conducting at the College of Music under the guidance of Professor Gary Lewis. After leaving the active duty Army, he had an opportunity to become the commander of the 44th Army Band, "New Mexico's Own" Army National Guard Band.

When the COVID-19 pandemic broke in March, the state of New Mexico put out a call to all of its citizen-soldiers looking for volunteers to support the effort to slow the spread of the virus and to help people affected by the disaster. We learned that Captain Huff was involved in these efforts and reached out to learn more. Here's what he shared with us:

"Ten musicians from the band volunteered for this 30-day mission, which has since turned into a 75-day mission. The 44th Army Band offered more volunteers than any other unit in the state of New Mexico!

"Since March 14th, these soldier-musicians have executed hundreds of missions to deliver food to food banks and children who usually get their lunches at school, as well as medical supplies to hospitals and emergency operation centers all over this enormous state. The beginning of this activation was pretty chaotic. Some of us were stationed in the COVID-19 hotline call center answering calls from people who needed food and supplies, lost their jobs, didn't know where to get tested, etc. Some of my troops ended up driving big rig trucks all over the state of New Mexico. Others were operating forklifts and moving pallets of food onto trucks. Two were assigned to a warehouse to inventory and help distribute goods, and a couple others were sent to our state headquarters in Santa Fe to help with the coordination of the enormous statewide effort. We all work 12-hour shifts, day and night, in order to keep the operation moving ahead.

"I like to help people out, and I like to serve others. In times of crisis, I'm happy to help in any way I can, and I am enormously proud that so many bandsmen and women volunteered to help, too. Senior leaders in New Mexico already knew how talented the bandsmen are as musicians, but this campaign has demonstrated how competent they are at performing nearly any task, and how selfless they are when it comes to serving their fellow New Mexicans."

Between Captain Huff's shifts, he's also the Director of Orchestras at Washburn University and working to complete his DMA at the University of Colorado Boulder.

β€œNew Mexico’s Own,” the 44th Army Band, did exceptionally well on their ARNG Operational Readiness Evaluation. SSG Delgado was recognized by name for her exceptional work and I coined her for her excellent performance. Great job CPT Huff, 1SG Archuleta, and the entire Band. We are proud of you and want to see you continue to get even better!
