The Southern State Community Band will honor our nation’s veterans with a Veterans Day concert 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro. The Veterans Day concert is free and open to the public.
The band will perform a number of patriotic selections, including a march dedicated to World War II’s “Flying Tigers,” an arrangement of “America the Beautiful,” and standards such as “God Bless America.”
The Southern State Community Band was formed more than 10 years ago and, since its first days as an ensemble, has performed annual concerts in honor of our veterans. Founding member Corrine Erickson was a member of the first all-women military W.A.F. Band.
The band includes both students and community members, and welcomes new members at any time. Rehearsals are held 6:30 p.m. Thursdays in the auditorium. For more information, please contact Brian Siemers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
