This extravaganza offers a musical program of traditional band, music with vocals, and Herald Trumpet fanfare. The concert features classical, popular, and patriotic music -- complete with smokin' cannons. So bring a blanket/lawn chair/picnic and mix with your fellow area alums.(NOTE: EARLY ARRIVAL WILL HELP PREVENT TERRITORIAL ENCROACHMENT).
