Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra presents Veterans Tribute Nov. 9

The Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra Presents a Veterans Tribute Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. at the Weill Center for the Performing Arts, Sheboygan.

This concert honors service personnel, including veterans and active service members. The Symphony is pleased to present a program that includes many patriotic favorites. The Symphony Chorus joins the orchestra for a rousing tribute to service members.

Kevin McMahon, SSO Director & Conductor, stated, “Bill TeWinkle returns as a narrator to present and breathe life into the poem displayed on the Statue of Liberty.”

McMahon continued, “A centerpiece of the concert is based on John Steinbeck’s novel, The Red Pony.  Aaron Copland wrote music for a movie of the same title, creating a suite for concert performance.

An arrangement of conductor Arturo Toscanini’s, from World War II, will be performed.”

Additional patriotic repertoire includes Lowden’s Armed Forces Salute, Rodgers/Bennett’s Victory at Sea, Sousa’s Liberty Bell March, Gould’s American Salute, Williams’ Hymn to the Fallen and Steffe/Ringwald’s Battle Hymn of the Republic.

The Interludes Pre-Concert talk begins at 6:30 pm. It is a free event for concert ticket holders.

Space is limited, and an R.S.V.P is required. For more information contact us at business@sheboygansymphony.org or call 920-452-1985.

Active service members and veterans receive 50% off of up to two tickets.
