Utah National Guard hosts veterans’ day concert


The Utah National Guard will host its 62nd annual Veterans’ Day concert Friday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Tabernacle on Temple Square.

At the new venue the event will include performances by the Utah National Guard’s 23rd Army Band, led by Chief Warrant Officer Denny Saunders and a 690-voice Granite School District high school combined choir.

The program theme of “Valor” will recognize and celebrate this invaluable attribute within our service members and veterans through a celebration of music and video spotlights.

During the event Utah National Guard’s former commander, retired Maj. Gen. Brian Tarbet, will provide the keynote address.

The Zions Bank Veterans Service Award recipient and Utah PTA essay “Why I Am Proud of My Veteran” contest winners will be recognized during the concert.

“A Time to Honor” Vietnam War commemorative books will be provided free of cost at the conclusion of the concert while supplies last.

Admission is free and the public is invited. Veterans of all ages and their families are encouraged to attend.

For questions, please contact Lt. Col. Steven Fairbourn at (801) 716-9209.
