LIVE ONLINE: Honoring Our Heroes on Memorial Day

Monday, May 25 | 7:00 PM | Watch Live

Memorial Day is a time to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives in the defense of freedom. They are among our nation’s heroes. Today, as we confront a war of a much different kind, other heroes are emerging who are putting their own lives on the line in a courageous battle against the coronavirus. Help us celebrate those who make us proud by their unselfish actions, their incredible spirit and their uncommon sense of purpose.

Join New West Symphony Music Director Michael Christie and CEO Natalia Staneva as they share music performed by our orchestra members and guest artists. This 45 minute online experience honors our heroes on Memorial Day.

And you can watch live online while staying safe at home. Register and we’ll send you the link to this online event.
