TRIBUTE TO FREEDOM!
New Dominion Choraliers of Prince William County to Perform “Tribute to Freedom” at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, November 10
The New Dominion Choraliers of Prince William County will present a special patriotic concert this fall — Tribute to Freedom — to honor those who serve, and have served, in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the U.S. Coast Guard, on Sunday, November 10, 2013, at 2:00 P.M. at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, 18900 Jefferson Davis Highway, Triangle, VA 22172. Admission to the Museum and the concert is FREE and open to the general public. A centerpiece of the concert will be a recent musical tribute to President John F. Kennedy, who served with distinction in the United States Navy, and was assassinated fifty years ago this November. The music, entitled ‘JFK: Rise, Fall, Immortality’, by Kurt Bestor, was commissioned by the American Choral Directors Association for its National Convention in Dallas, Texas, in March 2013, and was first performed in Dallas at the JFK Memorial Plaza on March 15, 2013. The concert will include other patriotic songs, such as the rousing music of ‘Stars and Stripes Forever’, and ‘Let Freedom Ring’, which will enliven the commitments to the political and spiritual freedoms that are common to us all as a nation. Songs like ‘Eternal Father, Strong to Save’ and ‘The Glory of His Promises’ will uplift your spirits and remind you of the hopes and bonds that people everywhere share. This patriotic program will also include, of course, the National Anthem– ‘The Star Spangled Banner’–as well as traditional favorites like ‘God Bless America’ and ‘The Pledge of Allegiance’; as set to music. The Virginia Society, Sons of the American Revolution, will present a Color Guard at the opening of the concert. Accompanying the Choraliers will be Marshall Maley on drums, and Robbie Melson on string bass.
