Veteran’s Day Salute

November 9
@3:00 pm
- 5:00 pm

This Veterans Day, the Big Chicken Chorus, the Marietta Daily Journal, and The Strand have come together to present a program celebrating and honoring the members of our armed forces. The program will feature a concert by the Marietta chapter of the national Barbershop Harmony Society and the Big Chicken Chorus, performing all of your favorite patriotic medleys.

The Marietta Daily Journal will present a documentary film “Memories of War” featuring interviews with local World War II veterans giving their invaluable testimony of the war and their place in it.

There will also be post-show Q&A talkback with WWII veterans about their experiences before, during, and after the war. A celebration of our veterans and an invaluable insight into the second world war from those who experienced it first hand, this event is a must-see for any supporters of the men and women who gave everything for their country and anyone with an interest in WWII history — directly from the ones who lived it.

Patrons will have the opportunity to purchase a VIP experience which includes VIP seating for the Veterans Day Salute program, a DVD copy of the “Memories of War” documentary, and a 4th-floor reception prior to the program. VIP RECEPTION BEGINS AT 2 PM.

All active-duty military and veterans get in free to the Veterans Day Salute program.

Tickets to the program are $10 for the general public.

For VIP tickets, which grants access to the pre-show reception, a copy of the documentary, and VIP seating, the price is $25. VIP tickets for active-duty military and veterans are $15.

Join us a half-hour before showtime for a live organ pre-show of patriotic music, performed by house organist Ron Carter on the Mighty Allen Theatre Organ!
