Concordia Wind Orchestra and Sinfonietta in Veterans Day Concert
* Additional fees apply.
The last date listed for Veterans Day Concert was Sunday November 11, 2012 / 5:00pm.
Parking was a long way away from the venue, so if you go, wear shoes which allow you to walk about 1/2 to 4/3 of a mile up and down inclines. The parking is free but very narrow parking spaces, try to get there a little early. The venue, is lovely, a sanctuary I believe.Music of the Americas info • Apr 15 2013 star this tip starred

A spectacular event put on by a small college's music department with extremely talented students. From the beginning set of Revolutionary War-time tunes (including Yankee Doodle Dandy) through a resounding presentation of the 1812 Overture, including an exploding cannon this was a fantastic reminder of why there is not an audio system or set of CD's that can come close to replacing a live orchestra in a specially designed for music venue. From the toe-tapping patriotic tunes of George M Cohan to the eerie sounds of helicopters landing on a mountain top in Korea and the haunting tune that was used at Ronald Reagan's memorial service the audience was enraptured by this extremely talented and disciplined group of college students.
The next time a music event comes up at the Concordia University Center for Worship and Performing Arts (Irvine, CA) featuring any of their musical groups - don't miss it!
