5th grade students at Island Lake Elementary School in Shoreview will be giving a Veteran’s Day Concert on November 11, 2011, 7:30 pm at Benson Great Hall on the Bethel University campus in Arden Hills. There will also be a dress rehearsal at Island Lake Elementary School, 3555 N. Victoria Street in Shoreview at 9 am. The public is invited to attend and bring a veteran or current service member. The students are directed by music teacher Amy McNabb. The 5th graders will be joined at the evening concert by the Two Rivers Chorale, directed by Tim Sawyer.

The program will include a look back at music from the Revolutionary War up to the present. Each branch of the service will be honored and members recognized when their theme songs are sung. Students and adults will each perform alone and join voices for old favorites such as You're a Grand Old Flag, Battle Hymn of the Republic and Yankee Doodle Boy. The Two Rivers Chorale will be accompanied by the grand pipe organ in Benson Great Hall, with antiphonal trumpets playing Taps at the end. Bring a veteran or current service member!
