America's Veterans: A Musical Tribute
Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at 8pm & 9pm on MPT-HD
The past military service of men and women becomes front-and-center each November as America observes Veterans Day. MPT is delighted once again to air our annual salute to veterans, America’s Veterans: A Musical Tribute.
This year’s musical celebration consists of performances by the U.S. Air Force Band and the Airmen of Note, the premier jazz ensemble of the U.S. Air Force, and Max Impact, the U.S. Air Force Band’s premier rock band. The 2015 production will particularly honor those who served in the Vietnam era with music from the 1960s and ‘70s.
The annual musical tribute takes on added significance in light of MPT’s preparations to put a spotlight on Maryland’s Vietnam veterans in 2016. As part of its MPT Salutes Vietnam Veterans project, MPT will honor Vietnam-era veterans in May 2016 with a three-hour documentary, Maryland Vietnam War Stories, followed in June by a special two-day public event, LZ Maryland, taking place at the Maryland State Fairgrounds.
