The concert begins at 5 p.m. at the Hunter Amphitheatre at Community Maritime Park behind the Blue Wahoos Stadium.
This concert is an excellent way for area residents, families, and friends to end the Memorial Day holiday weekend and have the opportunity to honor the men and women who have served in the military to maintain our freedom.
The Memorial Day program directed by Pensacola Civic Band director, Don Snowden, will entertain the audience with a number of patriotic selections that reflect on the sacrifices throughout our nation’s history.
Featured at this year’s concert is Pearl Harbor, Frank Emond, who will have just celebrated his 100th birthday. Mr. Emond will once again guest conduct the band in Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” Singer, Holly Shelton, joins the band as she performs the American classic “God Bless the U.S.A.”
The concert also features the Heal Our Land Community Choir which is comprised of volunteer singers from across the community. This choir will perform “Heal Our Land” by Wesley Putnam and “God Bless America” arranged by John Moss.
The concert is free and we invite everyone to bring their chairs or blankets for outdoor seating. Several vendors will be onsite with food and beverage available for purchase.
