The 114-voice Sno-King Community Chorale, conducted by Frank DeMiero, will perform its fifth annual Salute to America concert Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m., at Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410-4th Ave. N., Edmonds. Joining them again this year will be the popular Shoreline Concert Band, under the direction of Ken Noreen and assistant Scott Barnes.
A special musical tribute will be presented to several veterans, who will be guests of honor at this year’s patriotic concert.
The concert includes the traditional Presentation of the Colors, and all five branches of the armed forces will be represented and honored, both onstage and in the audience. Show your gratitude to a member of the service by inviting them to accompany you to this year’s event.
Sponsored by the Edmonds office of Coldwell Banker Bain, this stirring concert will include the popular Armed Forces Medley — the theme songs from all armed services. As each branch’s theme is announced, anyone in the audience who has served in that branch will be invited to stand during the performance of their theme song. Other choral works will be presented, including “The American Creed,” An Americana Songbook, including favorites “Oh, Shenandoah,” “Goodnight Ladies,” and “When the Saints Go Marching In,” and the ever-popular Lionel Richie/Michael Jackson anthem, “We Are the World.” The Shoreline Band will perform several instrumental selections: a West Side Story medley, music from How the West Was Won, and Clare Grundman’s American Folk Rhapsody No. 2.
