Hershey Symphony Orchestra Big Band to Salute Greatest Generation

The Hershey Symphony Orchestra Big Band invites the public to kick off Memorial Day weekend with a special tribute to the songs of World War II. The 20-piece Hershey Big Band will take the audience on a musical journey from 1939 to 1945 in the “Salute to the Greatest Generation” concert on May 24, 2012 at 8 p.m. in Miller Chapel of Lebanon Valley College.

The audience will be treated to musical selections including “I’ll be Seeing You,” “In the Mood,” “Moonlight Serenade,” and “Pennsylvania 6-5000.” Guests will also experience the drama, sacrifice, and excitement of a time of great change in America and a world at war through periodic “news reports” delivered in the style of an old radio broadcast.

All tickets are $15 and are available at the door. To order in advance please call 717.533.8449 or email management@hersheysymphony.org.
