 William Grant Still (1895-1978)

Johnstown, Pennsylvania

November 2020 marked the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, and this Veterans Day we honor the courage of our fellow citizens in their service to our country with this special concert. William Grant Still’s Fanfare for American War Heroes, Gene Scheer’s American Anthem, John Williams’s Hymn to the Fallen, and Richard Rodgers’s Victory At Sea will be followed by Beethoven’s fateful and triumphant fifth symphony, which served as a beacon of hope and inspiration for our troops and our allies serving overseas.
