City of Hattiesburg Concert Band, Meistersingers celebrate music of America

(The following is a press release submitted to WDAM7.  The City of Hattiesburg Concert Band and The Meistersingers will perform in concert June 26 at 3 p.m. at Smith Auditorium on the main Hattiesburg campus of William Carey University.  Admission is free.)

(HATTIESBURG, MS)  Celebrate the "Music of America" when Hattiesburg's premiere civic chorus, the Meistersingers and the venerable City of Hattiesburg Concert Band join forces on Sunday, June 26 at 3 p.m. in Smith Auditorium on the William Carey Campus. Featuring a program of star-spangled favorites, this family-friendly favorite is the perfect way to kick of July 4th celebrations.
 
The Meistersingers have a rich tradition of exceptional programming. This year's group includes about 30 singers from volunteers to professional musicians. Similarly, the City of Hattiesburg Concert Band includes musical students to retirees. All have come together for their love of music and patriotic spirit.
 
"It's always exciting to work with the Meistersingers in honoring America and our military." Said Dr. Sherman Hong, director of the band. "In these times, we feel it imperative that we show our love and patriotism for our great nation. Its important for our musicians and public to know that music reflects the history - failures, successes, and the hopes of what makes America the best in the world."
 
"You'll experience selections that will cause your face to smile and your toe to tap, and those that will stir the soul, swell your pride, and remind us all that we are free because we are brave." Said Joey Wilkinson, director of The Meistersingers. "Join us as we honor America, the land of the free and the home of the brave."
 
The concert is free and open to the public.
 
This program is made possible by the generous support of Owens Business Machines, Inc., William Carey University Winters School of Music and De. Mark Hugh Malone. The HCA is supported in part by funding from the Mississippi Arts Commission, a state agency, and in part from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
