Salute to our Veterans concert – FREE

November 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

The 40 member Southwest Florida Concert Band with guest vocalist Kathy Jenkins will perform Salute to our Veterans on Sunday November 19, at 2:00 P.M. at South Fort Myers High School, 14020 Plantation Rd, Fort Myers, FL 33912.

The dramatic program will be a musical salute to the dedication and sacrifices of our service members. Veterans will be recognized and can stand for the playing of their branch marches with the Armed Forces Salute. The Homefront contains memorable songs from the Second World War. The Nathan Hale Trilogy will salute that hero’s patriotic sacrifice during the American Revolutionary War.

The music The Light Eternal is inspired by the touching story of four U.S. Army chaplains who heroically sacrificed their lives during World War II and is based upon the well-known hymn God of Our Fathers. The band will play Arlington (where sleeping giants lie) which commemorates the service members buried there. Our guest vocalist is a veteran US Air Force Band singer who will sing Someone To Watch Over Me, You Raise Me Up and They Can’t Take That Away From Me.

The show will finish with a rousing Stars and Stripes Forever featuring our piccolo section.

It is a not to be missed performance by one of the newest community concert bands in the USA.

All concerts are FREE with donations accepted. Information on the group, our scholarship program, and other performances can be found on our website.
