28th Annual Patriotic Celebration -
In Times of Peace

Friday, Jul 03, 2015, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

There are times of war; there are times of peace. A simple question: “What times are we in now?” There’s lots of music recalling times of war. Is there music celebrating times of peace or the wish for peace? Definitely, yes! As we prepare to celebrate our nation’s 239th birthday with the band’s 28th Annual Patriotic Celebration, join with us as we musically explore such times - the world Waiting for the Sunrise, a Prayer for Peace, an army that just disappeared (think Twilight Zone), and more. Former US Marine Dave Brook recalls his military experiences serving in a time of peace. And, of course, there’s the annual pre-4th of July salute to our military service personnel past and present who have helped secure our freedom and liberty. It’s a concert event you definitely will not want to miss. (And again this year, this concert is in the Cary Arts Center Theater, where it’s cool indoors and rain will not spoil the event!) Please join with us for a concert In Times of Peace.
