The Bonita Springs Concert Band, under the direction of Gary E. Smith, will open the 2014-2015 concert season on Sunday, November 2, at 2:00 P.M. in Riverside Park on Old 41 in Bonita Springs.

This special concert is “A Salute to America” through patriotic music to honor all veterans and active members of our armed forces who are invited to stand and be recognized when the official songs of our five military branches are played. Armed Forces Salute arranged by Bob Lowden includes: The Caisson Song; Semper Paratus; The Marines’ Hymn; The U.S. Air Force and Anchors Aweigh.

The Light Eternal is a stunning work! Inspired by the touching story of four U.S. Army chaplains who heroically sacrificed their lives during World War II, it is based upon the well-known hymn God Of Our Fathers. James Swearingen’s composition is certain to have a startling emotional impact on all who hear it. You will be overwhelmed by this extraordinary piece of music!

This concert lasts two hours and is a special way to support our veterans. Royal Scoop Ice Cream will be there this year to sell refreshments. Bring a chair or a blanket and enjoy the show.
