The Everett Chorale and The Shoreline Concert Band are teaming up to do a “Salute to America” concert on Thurs., Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at The Edmonds Performing Arts Center at 410 4th Ave N., Edmonds.
Special Guest Artist will be Seattle native Gunnery Sergeant Harry Ong of the President’s Own United States Marine Band in Washington D.C. performing on Clarinet.
There are many familiar patriotic songs that will be performed, such as The Battle Hymn of the Republic, God Bless America, America the Beautiful, and Armed Forces: The Pride of America.
The band’s selections include Battle Cry For Freedom, Arlington (dedicated to the people at Arlington National Cemetery), and a Copland Tribute.
Band leader Ken Noreen says, “This special concert next Thursday at the Edmonds Performing Arts Center is really appropriate for November 11 holiday. The Everett Chorale and Shoreline Concert Band will combine to present music to honor our country.”
This wonderful program is done without an admission charge, but attendees are asked to give to a student scholarship fund as they enter.
This concert is sponsored by Coldwell Banker Bain of Edmonds and Lynnwood. To ensure a seat, guest passes can be picked up at Coldwell Banker Bain Offices in Edmonds (108 5th Ave S) or Lynnwood (1400 194th SW #135), or general seating will open at 7:15pm.
