Today we’re pleased to announce the 2014 National Memorial Day Concert Series – an exclusive event hosted by Music Celebrations International, with support from the American Veterans Center. This concert series will feature outstanding musical performances by choirs, concert bands, and orchestras in Washington, D.C. at the National World War II Memorial over Memorial Day Weekend. As part of D-Day 70 Concerts, this series will be one of the official events commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Normandy.
Participating ensembles will be featured performers at the National World War II Memorial, and will experience the thrill of performing for large crowds at America’s distinguished memorial to World War II veterans. They will also have the opportunity to attend the live PBS broadcast of the National Symphony Orchestra concert at the U.S. Capitol, participate in a military wreath-laying ceremony during the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery, and view the country’s biggest and most spectacular Memorial Day Parade along the National Mall.
Most importantly, each music ensemble’s performance will honor America’s war heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
