CELEBRATE AMERICA "All Patriotic Music" Concert Series
Patriotic Music Concerts
Piedmont Choral Society invites you to its 16th annual "All Patriotic Music" concert series as they celebrate America and help a worthy non-profit through music. The group is all-volunteer, with members ages 16-90 coming from Cabarrus and surrounding counties. Joseph Judge is director and Dr. Don Simmons is accompanist. Mr. Judge is Director of Choral Activities and Assistant Professor of Music at Pfeiffer University and music director of Central Methodist Church in Albemarle. Dr. Simmons is adjunct Professor of Music at Pfeiffer as well as music director and organist of Kimball Lutheran Church in Kannapolis. The choral group performs many times during the year, with two formal concerts and several informal events annually. All events are free, and no ticket is required. The patriotic/benefit concert series is a favorite event for both the community and the choir. This event was started in 2004 as a way to honor our country and give back to our community through the gift of music. Over 30 area singers will be part of the choir this year, bringing 80+ voices singing to celebrate America and honor our military heroes. Stirring and exciting patriotic songs will be presented. All military personnel and their families will be recognized, along with an emotional tribute to our POWs/MIAs and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Music of the WWII era will be featured. Mr. Cy Maulden, 95, a WWII veteran, is a member of the group. The Thursday night, June 20th - 7pm event will be a benefit concert for the Concord based non-profit Jason Ray Foundation (jasonray.org), which supports organ donation and transplant education and advocacy. JRF was established in memory of Jason Ray, a Concord resident (UNC-Chapel Hill Senior and proud mascot, Rameses, for the University) who was involved in an auto/pedestrian accident. Jason's mother, Charlotte, will speak at the concert. A reception will follow.
Concert will be repeated as a fundraiser for PCS on Friday, June 21 at 7pm and Sunday June 23 at 3 pm. For more info on PCS, their events or to donate to the group, contact 704.699.6053 or email@example.com.
