To Honor: A Concert in Honor of American Veterans
November 11, 2017, 6:00 pm & 8:00 pm
Tulsa Air & Space Museum
“To Honor” is presented by Tulsa Oratorio Chorus in appreciation for our military service veterans for their service and sacrifice. This one-hour choral concert features songs that pay tribute to our veterans, our country, and songs that celebrate our region and the American experience.
Ian Gill, an incredible singer/songwriter/guitarist living in Dallas and an OU graduate, will be our guest star for the November 11 concert. Ian (a relative of Vince Gill) will sing songs from the great American songbook such as “American Pie”, “This Land is Your Land”, Simon & Garfunkel’s “America” with the chorus as backup. In addition, the 100 voice Tulsa Oratorio Chorus, accompanied by players from the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, will present patriotic works including Randall Thompson’s “Testament of Freedom”, John Williams’ “Hymn for the Fallen”, “Battle Hymn of the Republic”, and, of course, “Armed Forces Medley”.
