SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah National Guard will host its 57th annual Veterans Day concert Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. at the University of Utah’s Jon M. Huntsman Center.
The event will include performances by the Guard’s 23rd Army Band, led by Chief Warrant Officer Denny Saunders, and a 600-voice Granite School District high school combined choir.
The program, titled “Looking Forward,” will highlight the sacrifices made by everyday veterans and their families.
During the program, Zions Bank will present its third annual Veterans Service Award to recently retired Maj. Gen. Brian Tarbet, former adjutant general of the Utah National Guard, for his lifetime of service and support of military veterans.
Also, awards will be presented in an essay contest for children of currently serving members of the Armed Forces. The theme of the contest was “Why I Am Proud to Be a Military Brat.”
The following students were selected as winners: Brian Walker, a fifth-grader at Sage Hills Elementary in Saratoga Springs; Josiah Ortega, of Excelsior Preparatory Academy in Eagle Mountain; Madeline Buhman, a senior at Timpanogos High School in Orem
