In honor of the pioneers and patriots who have preserved and fought for the freedoms enjoyed in America, Brigham Young University-Idaho’s Department of Music will host a musical performance on Thursday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Barrus Concert Hall.
The patriotic performance will feature the BYU-Idaho Symphony Band and BYU-Idaho Concert Choir. The musical groups will pay tribute to the brave men and women who have defended the many freedoms we enjoy today.
“Anytime we can honor our service men and women, I see it as a privilege for us to do that,” said Director of Bands Diane Soelberg.
The performers will also celebrate the pioneers and those who have come before us; remembering their devotion to God, and the merciful hand of God which blessed their efforts.
The performance will feature a variety of songs, some familiar and others new, including “Be Thou My Vision,” “America The Beautiful,” and “Fanfare for an Angel,” as well as a new song that has never been performed here before called “Hallelujah! What a Savior!”
Tickets for the performance are $3 for students and $6 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased online at www.byui.edu/tickets, at the University Store Ticket Office, or by calling 208-496-3170.
