D-Day Remembrance Concert
On Sunday, June 2, 2019, the County Line Community Band will join forces with the 323rd Army Band, “Fort Sam’s Own” in a joint performance of their “D- Day Remembrance Concert” at the University of the Incarnate Word at 6:30pm in the amazing Luella Bennack Concert Hall. This year marks 75 years since the landings on the Normandy beaches in France that began the liberation of Europe and the eventual end to WWII. As a special part of this concert the bands will premier a new musical composition by local composer, Charles Booker, titled “Undaunted Courage” that pays homage to the Service-members who landed on the beaches and gave their full measure of devotion to our country.
Commander and Bandmaster of the 323rd Army Band, CW4 Jono Ward and CLCB Director, Toby Knight, would like to invite the public to this first of its kind joint performance between “Fort Sam’s Own” and one of San Antonio’s premier local community bands.
