06 Jun SOUNDS OF AMERICA CONCERT
FISHERS MUSIC WORKS PRESENTS
3RD ANNUAL SOUNDS OF AMERICA CONCERT
BY THE WHITE RIVER WIND SYMPHONY
The White River Wind Symphony, a Fishers Music Works ensemble under the direction of Dr. Keith Kunda, will present their third annual Sounds of America concert on Sunday, July 1 at 4:00 p.m. at Legacy Bible Church, Noblesville.
White River Wind Symphony is a professional concert band open only by audition or invitation. As such the band plays at a very high quality level, and the Sounds of America Concert has become a favorite Fishers Music Works event in central Indiana in just three years. The concert always consists of all American music in a variety of styles. This year features music from film, Broadway, Madison Avenue, and the Olympics, plus music of Elvis, marches, a hymn, and of course music to honor America and celebrate our country’s 242nd birthday. Educational and sometimes humorous narration helps the audience to understand more deeply what they are hearing; this year’s narrator, Ashton Wolf, will help with many answers to the question, “Why do people compose music?”
A special tribute to veterans of World War II, entitled The Greatest Generation, is included in this year’s concert. Another patriotic selection, An American Spectacular, takes the audience on a musical history tour of our nation from the French and Indiana War to the present. All active and veteran military personnel will also be honored through the songs associated with their branch of the service.
Featured soloist for the concert is Mindy Root, a veteran of New York City opera and a regular with Fishers Music Works. Mindy will perform the extended version of The Star Spangled Banner.
Tickets for Sounds of America are available at FishersMusicWorks.org for $12 each. Early bird tickets can be purchased for $10 before June 20. Legacy Bible Church is located at 2140 Greenfield Ave. in Noblesville.
Donations will be collected at the concert to benefit Ella Whistler, the 13-year-old student who was critically injured when a gunman opened fire in her classroom at Noblesville West Middle School on May 25, 2018. All donations will be submitted to Ella’s Go Fund Me campaign to assist with her medical expenses and bills. These proceeds are directed to the family to help offset the expenses during Ella’s road to recovery.
