National Parks 100th Anniversary!

Thursday, August 25, 2016 is the 100th anniversary of our National Parks. Celebrate this historic occasion with SI Philharmonic, the National Park Service, and SI OutLOUD with a grand concert celebration, 6:00 pm, at Ft. Wadsworth. SI Phil, conducted by Army Bandmaster CW4 Russell Houser, will present a musical tour of National Park highlights from around the USA, with narration provided by the fine folks from SI OutLOUD. Selections will include John Williams’ “Liberty Fanfare,” the beloved American folk song “Shenandoah,” “A New Birth of Freedom,” and “Prayer of Eleanor Roosevelt.” This outdoor performance is family-friendly, free, and open to all.
