The Algoma Community Band and The Lakeshore Singers will present their annual Veterans Day concert Nov. 8, 7 pm in the Algoma Elementary School Performing Arts Center (PAC). Tom Mueller directs the band and David Robertson directs The Lakeshore Singers.
The concert opens with the presentation of the flags by veterans followed by the community band playing some favorite patriotic songs. The most familiar will be “Victory at Sea” and “Midway,” directed by David Kopetsky. The “Armed Forces Salute” is a traditional piece including songs for all branches of the military. This annual favorite is directed by John Nielsen.
The Lakeshore Singers will follow by singing a few patriotic songs. One of their energetic numbers is “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” arranged by John Rutter. Director David Robertson and Liz Melotte accompany the singers on this familiar piece, with audience participation.
