A salute to Utah's veterans and those involved in Operation Desert Shield is planned for Nov. 10 - on Veterans Day weekend - at Roy High School.
The salute features a world-famous singing group, the U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Chorale. The chorale has sung in nearly every state and has performed for numerous events, including the rededication of the Statue of Liberty.The concert, scheduled from 7:30 to 9:15 p.m., is intended to recognize all Utah veterans, display support for Utah's military personnel and civilians who have helped Operation Desert Shield and to thank those who have helped men and women serving overseas. The public is invited.
"There are literally thousands of individuals along the Wasatch Front who have served in the military in past years," said Dan Hendrickson, state president of the Air Force Association.
Community groups, students and many businesses throughout the area have actively supported Operation Deseret Shield, he said.
The academy's chorale is a 90-member group that first performed in October 1958. The musical selections range from Broadway show tunes to patriotic music.
Seating for the free concert will be on a first-come, first-served basis. No tickets or reservations are necessary.
Doors will open at the high school at 7:10 p.m. for general seating. Anyone with special access needs because of physical handicaps should go to the northeast door at the front of the school auditorium between 6:30 and 7 p.m.
