Wednesday, October 27, 2021

The annual free Veterans Day Concert, a way of thanking all of the military veterans and their families, is set for Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m.

This event honors the area’s veterans and their families with patriotic pieces, such as Custer’s The American Frontier, the Tennessee premiere of James Stephenson’s Fanfare for Democracy, and the popular Armed Forces Salute. The Lee University Singers, led by Brad Moffett, will join the orchestra. The concert is conducted by CSO’s Assistant Conductor Ismael Sandoval. 

“We’re thrilled to continue our Veterans Day concert which is always free to the community,” said Samantha Teter, executive director. “Now in its 10th year, we are proud to honor our local veterans for their service to our country.”

It will be held at Memorial Auditorium.

Attendees will need to present proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the concert to enter the venue.
