Phoenix Symphony to salute America’s veterans

May 20, 2013 by  

Phoenix area residents will soon be gathering to enjoy a unique patriotic concert.

In less than two weeks’ time, the Phoenix Symphony will be hosting its own ‘Salute to the Troops’ event. Poster printing is likely on the rise as the organizers of this musical treat work to spread word of it to the community.

The Symphony will perform a number of classic American songs during the concert, including The Star-Spangled Banner, My Country ‘Tis of Thee, and America the Beautiful. The musicians will be under the direction of Maestro Stuart Chafetz, who has received national recognition for his conducting abilities. Thomas Bookhout will lead the singing chorus.

Many members of the armed forces are expected to be in the audience. They are encouraged to arrive in full uniform so that they can receive public recognition for their service. The concert hall will be decorated with United States flags and red, white, and blue balloons, reinforcing the spirit of the event.

The concert will take place shortly after Memorial Day. It will open on Friday, May 31 and repeat on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2. It will have a start time of 8:00 pm on the first two nights and begin at 2:00 pm on the last day. Ticket prices will run from $18 to $83.

Phoenix Symphony Hall is located in the downtown area of the city at 225 East Adams Street. Those who would like to purchase tickets or are in need of additional information may call (602) 266-7464.
