When their country needed them most, they stood up. Ordinary citizens who heeded the call, and joined the American armed forces.

Your Anchorage Symphony is honoring these extraordinary men and women with our Veterans Day Salute.

This evening of patriotic homage begins with the world premiere of In Selfless Service... written by retired Army Band Chief Arranger, Paul Murtha.

In remembrance of the 100th Anniversary of WWI, Aaron Copland’s poignant Quiet City will accompany a photo montage of “The Great War.” WWII images commemorating the 75th anniversary of mankind’s most widespread conflict will be underscored by the third movement of Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No. 5.

The program also includes Veteran Samuel Barber’s Essay No. 2, excerpts from Richard Rodgers’ stirring Victory at Sea, and Copland’s inspirational, Lincoln Portrait, narrated by local veteran, John Ahearn.
