Join us for Arborlawn’s cherished annual Independence Day tradition - the “A Salute to America” concert - on Friday, July 4 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This year we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this crowd favorite.
The concert features the 200-voice Festival Chorus. The entertaining evening includes singing of all military anthems with veterans and families standing for their respective branch of the service, as well as audience participation in singing “God Bless America,” “You're a Grand Old Flag,” “My Country ’tis of Thee,” “America the Beautiful,” and other favorites.
The choir will be singing favorites including Wilhousky's “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “This is My Song,” “Let There Be Peace on Earth,” and others. Under the direction of Arborlawn’s minister of worship arts Tom Stoker, the choir will be accompanied by Dr. Jerry Westenkuehler, organist, on Arborlawn’s 106-rank Dan Garland Organ.
The choir is open to anyone who wants to sing that evening. Singers are asked to wear their favorite red, white, and blue, and come to rehearse from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Singers will be served a light dinner, and the choir will then sing for the 7:00 p.m. concert.
There is no admission charge for the concert, and the public is invited to attend.
