Date: November 22, 2013
Location: District of Columbia, USA
Choirs are now being accepted to the 2015 National Memorial Day Choral Festival, taking place May 22-25, 2015 in Washington, D.C. The event culminates in two outstanding performances – the first, on Sunday, May 24, is a matinee concert at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; and, the second, as part of the Opening Ceremonies for the National Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 25.
Dr. Craig Jessop will return for his fifth year as Artistic Director and Conductor.
Conceived in 2008 as a joint venture by the American Veterans Center and Music Celebrations International to attract greater attention to the true meaning of the Memorial Day holiday, Washington, D.C.'s annual Memorial Day Choral Festival honors those veterans past and present who have sacrificed so much for the liberties we currently enjoy in our country - as well as around the world.
