Students to give musical tribute to veterans and active military personnel
November 3, 2009
Local students will pay tribute to veterans and active military personnel during a free Nov. 9 concert at South Tahoe Middle School.
About 250 students from the South Tahoe High School and middle school bands, orchestras, choirs and ROTC will perform from 7 to 8 p.m. in the middle school multi-purpose room.
The program will include patriotic music and songs, while attending guests will be recognized with pins, a VIP seating section and a special musical tribute of service songs to which they will stand and be honored by music students.
The audience and students will have opportunity to write a postcard to troops overseas, and music students will be thanking vets in attendance with a personal note in the days after the concert. A brief reception will be hosted by parent groups after the concert.
