NGU Orchestra to Present Concert

As an extension of last year’s Year of Altruism, the NGU Orchestra will present “Heroes – Music for those who gave that we might live” on Tuesday, October 28 at 7pm in Turner Chapel.

The orchestra will perform works from revolutionary Italy, WWI England, and works representative of WWII Poland and the Czech Republic, and WWII Soviet Union. 

Throughout this evening's concert the selected works’ associations will be described and NGU ROTC cadets will present short biographies and actual citations of Congressional Medal of Honor recipients from WWs I and II, Korea, Vietnam, the War in Iraq, and Afghanistan.   The cadets will tell of men who gave of themselves in order to defend our nation, the sacrifice of men who dared to die. 

The orchestra and the NGU Singers will conclude the concert by glorifying the One who gave all that we might come to know Him, that we might accept His sacrificial gift of dying in our place so we might live. 

On the program: Verdi's Overture to Nabucco, Farrar's Heroic Elegy, Williams' Three Pieces from Schindler’s List with Dr. Leslie Warlick, solo violin, Ippolitov-Ivanov's Caucasian Sketches, and Anderson/Habegger/Forrest'sHis Robes for Mine.

This is a free concert and open to the public.
