Are you looking for an inspirational way to honor and remember our war veterans, especially if you couldn’t participate in the Carry the Load National Relay? I encourage you to attend the Memorial Concert at St. James’s Episcopal Church on Sunday evening, May 26 at 7:00 p.m. The St. James’s Festival Chorus (I am a member) and Orchestra will perform music for double choir and brass, a Palestrina mass (Missa Christi Aeterna munera) and spirituals by Moses Hogan. An offering will be collected to benefit the Virginia War Memorial Foundation and other agencies that serve our veterans.
Afterward, all attending are invited to celebrate at a champagne gala reception in the Parkinson Room underneath our Sanctuary. The concert is free, and we hope you will encourage all veterans and military service men and women you know to attend.
If you know of a veteran or someone serving now and want them added to the Honorees Roster, please contact our director Mark Whitmire at 804-355-1779, extension 323.
