Choral concert for Wounded Warrior Project is Tuesday

The Choral Department of James M. Bennett High School will present its annual Spring Concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, “Sounds of America,” in the James M. Bennett Auditorium in Salisbury.

This concert will be special in many ways, and the public is invited to participate.

The entire concert is a certified fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project. There is no admission, but donations will be accepted for the Wounded Warrior Project throughout the concert; all donations will go exclusively to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Many concertgoers and choir members have someone in their family or circle of friends who serves or has served in the military, including those who have been wounded while serving their country.

The program on Tuesday will have special resonance for them. As a recognition to those who serve, the Concert Choir will pay tribute to our Armed Forces with special guests, a slide presentation, and a spectacular version of the Star Spangled Banner.

“My family is very proud to have servicemen in all four branches,” said 9th grader Emily Gutierrez, All Shore and All State alto and member of the JMB Concert Choir. In her Talbott-Gutierrez family, “I have a cousin, two grandfathers (one is my great-grandfather), a cousin, an uncle, and a godfather who have served in the Army. My granddad served in the Air Force. My dad served in the Navy. My brother and my uncle served in the Marine Corps.”

The evening will also feature examples from all genres of American music from pop to jazz, classical to silly, spiritual to patriotic, and folk to rock. Both the Concert Choir and Intermediate Choir will perform.
