This Monday is Memorial Day, when we remember those who served in the military and gave their lives for our freedom. It is a day of remembrance, especially for those families immediately affected by such a sacrifice.
Please keep the solemnity of the day in mind. Take a moment to honor those who gave their lives. And also honor all who served. It is because of their service that we enjoy the freedoms that we have.
I hope to see you at the Knightwind Ensemble concert at Wisconsin Memorial Park at 1 PM in the Chapel of the Chimes.
The second reminder is that Dr. Patricia Backhaus will conduct last concert as Music Director of the Milwaukee Festival Brass on Saturday June 4 at 3 PM in the Schwan Concert Hall of Wisconsin Lutheran College. It will be a memorable concert for sure, mixing Beatles music, 50's Rock and Roll, the music of Gustav Holst, and music from the Lord of the Rings. WOW! Let's fill the hall for this one!
