About this event:
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 Brigadier General John Hort, U.S. Army, Deputy Commanding General - Rear, 3ID, in narration to the Winds' performance of America, the Beautiful; U.S. Army 3ID honor guard to present our great nation’s colors; and Chatham County Veteran of the Year honors to Jim Vaughan, Master Sergeant, U.S. Air Force (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. Last year, General Oglethorpe - or a very close likeness - conducted the finale. Be sure to be present to guess who our surprise iconic guest will be this year.
