About this event:
"In Celebration of our Independence”, the Savannah Winds, community wind symphony in residence at Armstrong, concludes its 2011-2012 subscription season by honoring America, her service men and women, and veterans of the United States armed forces with its highly popular Annual Patriotic Concert.

Underscoring brilliant marches of America's iconic "March king" John Philip Sousa, the uplifting music of legendary composer Irving Berlin and the "blessing of America" to the tune of country-western songwriter Lee Greenwood, this exciting concert features Major General Robert B. Abrams, Commanding General of the United States Army's 3rd Infantry Division, in narration to the Winds' performance of America, the Beautiful; 3ID honor guard to present our great nation’s colors; and Chatham County Veteran of the Year honors to Armstrong Junior College alumnus Corporal Joseph Conners, USMCR (Retired).

This proud concert event honors distinguished military service and crescendos to great fanfare culminating with an appearance by one of America’s celebrity personas to guest conduct the Winds in performance of John Philip Sousa’s bombastic Stars and Stripes Forever. Be sure to guess who our surprise iconic guest will be this year.
