FREMONT – With voting day coming up tomorrow and Veteran’s day this Sunday, many of us have thoughts of patriotism on our minds. Coming up this weekend, the Broad Street Revue and The Palladium Brass will give a concert in celebration of our country and our service people.
First United Methodist Church at 8th and Broad Streets in Fremont will host this concert of patriotic music this Sunday, November 11th at 2:00PM. The concert will open with the advancing of the colors along with the national anthem. Bob Yanike is the concert director with accompaniment by Mary Beth Hilbers on piano and Barbara Johnson on organ.
“This could be the perfect catharsis in this time of division, frustration, anger, and distrust,” say concert organizers. The music planned for the concert appeals to everyone, with familiar tunes like God Bless America, My Country Tis of Thee, This Land is Your Land and more. Other tunes will celebrate and reflect on the sacrifice of our veterans and the courage of those who helped slaves reach freedom on the underground railroad.
The concert is open to all, free of charge. Freewill offerings will be accepted with the proceeds directed to Fremont’s Veteran’s Memorial Park.
