2014 Memorial Day Concert Directions
This year’s Memorial Day Concert is not only a tribute to veterans who have fought and died for our country, it is also dedicated to the memory of Mark Weber, recent mayor of Blue Ash and a staunch supporter of the Orchestra. His wife, Christine remarked that he considered BAMSO’s music a highlight, not only during his tenure as Mayor, but throughout his life. Concertmaster Laura Proffit will play the Ashokan Farewell, one of Mark's favorites, as a tribute to him.
There will be music for everyone’s taste – Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, Brahm’s Academic Festival Overture, John William’s Harry Potter Suite for the kids and, of course, in honor of Memorial Day, Richard Rogers’ Victory at Sea and Sousa’s – Sempre Fidelis.
